Storms Pack A Heavy Rain Punch

Good Monday, folks. We are rolling into a tropical week of weather across the commonwealth of Kentucky. Steamy temps and periods of heavy rain producing thunderstorms highlight the weather menu. Beyond this week, the busy pattern continues with deep troughs digging into the country.

The storm threat does increase a bit today and any storm that goes up can put down some very heavy rains…

Thunderstorms will continue to increase in the coming days, as deep tropical moisture takes control of our atmosphere. This means the storms ahead will have even more moisture to work with, upping the ante for local high water issues.

Again, it’s not going to rain everyday where you live. When it does, its gonna be heavy. There is cloudburst potential with the storms over the next week.

A dip in the jet stream moves in here later this weekend and early next week. Will something tropical be developing in the Gulf during this time? That’s certainly possible.

The Canadian can always be counted on to blow up a big tropical system…

The GFS is trying to do something similar…

Beyond that, deep troughs really dig in across the eastern half of the country…

For the millionth time in the past few months… This is not a summer for any one pattern to lock in for the long haul. It’s just not. That gives us a balancing act with temps and a busier than normal summer storm and flash flood season.

Make it a great day and take care.
