Local High Water Threat

Good Tuesday and Happy 4th of July. Our Independence Day finds showers and thunderstorms rumbling across the bluegrass state, in what has become the norm of late. Some of the storms out there today can put down a lot of water, causing some issues.

If you miss out on today’s action, hang in there, more storms are on the way for the rest of the week.

There’s a small-scale low pressure working west to east across Kentucky today. This will have a defined area of showers and storms with it, and can put down some hefty rain totals. Watch the creeks and streams, especially across areas that picked up a lot of rain yesterday…

Showers and storms will come at us in waves through the end of the week. The stuff later Wednesday into Thursday may be a little strong, with additional heavy rains. As I’ve been saying since last week, some local flooding issues can develop in a pattern like this.

Much cooler air then slides in behind a cold front arriving to start the upcoming weekend and may carry us through much of next week…

This progressive pattern shows no signs of slowing down, with no single temperature pattern becoming established. That’s a good thing if you don’t like true summer heat and you like active weather to track. 🙂

Have a happy and sage 4th of July and take care.
