Showers and Storms On The Increase

Good Sunday, folks. Showers and storms are rumbling from west to east today and will kick off a cool (for the time of year) and active period. While temps stay well below normal, rounds of rain will be rolling our way through the week ahead. I’ve even got a long range model showing this pattern locking in through much of September.

Showers and storms will be across western Kentucky early today, with this action rolling eastward as the day wears on. This should finally reach eastern parts of the state by evening…

Heavy rain and storms will be likely tonight into Monday, with 1″-2″ rain amounts possible in some areas. The best chance of that appears to be in the south. Temps today and Monday are going to be cooler than normal. Today, the east can hit the low 80s outside the rain, with 70s for areas getting the drops.. Monday’s numbers may find everyone only in the 70s.

Tuesday will find the area in between rain makers, as temps run in the upper 70s to low 80s. Rain returns on Wednesday and keeps coming at us in waves for the rest of the week, into the weekend and early next week…

It’s NOT going to rain all the time, and some will go a few days between rain chances, but this is a very active setup for an otherwise quiet time of year.

The longer range from the Euro takes us through the middle of September and shows above normal rainfall during this time…

And the average temp through this time is on the cool side of normal…

Sorry, summer fans!

Make it a great day and take care.
