Tracking Storms As We Flip The Calendar

Good Friday to one and all. June has been a rather wet month across Kentucky, so it’s appropriate to end it by tracking storms across the region. These boomers are part of a pattern that will keep rounds of storms going into early July, possibly having an impact on those 4th of July Plans.

Today’s storms will be rather scattered early on, but better coverage may develop this evening into tonight. A line of thunderstorms may press our way from the west and northwest during this time, and some of them may be strong across the north and west.

Here’s the day one severe weather outlook from the Storm Prediction Center, along with your tracking toys…


A cold front settles in here on Saturday with additional showers and storms around. Once again, some could be strong or severe. The SPC outlook for Saturday…

In addition to the threat for local severe weather, these storms will pack a heavy rain punch. That could cause some local high water issues.

The front will then hang around the region through the middle of next week, keeping our storm chances going. Those storm chances will include the 4th of July on Tuesday. After this a disturbance tries to dive in from the northwest…

The models are then hinting at another cool down next weekend…

Now that June is wrapping up, let’s look back at the temps for the first month of summer. Much of Kentucky will finish below normal…

Make it a great day and take care.
