Heavy Rains Return

Good evening, folks. Our cold front has slammed on the brakes across southern Kentucky and this will allow more rain to fire up. This rain will be heavy at times tonight into Tuesday as chilly air really begins to press in from the north.

Another inch or so of rain is possible through Tuesday, but the models differ slightly on where the axis of heaviest rain falls.

The GFS…

The NAM,,,

Here’s regional radar to track the increasing action…

Temps on Tuesday drop into the low 40s from north to south. This seasonally chilly air will hang around into Wednesday and Thursday, along with clouds and some additional shower action.

A weak front drops in Friday with cold temps. Lows Friday and Saturday likely drop deep into the 20s.

Another front moves in Saturday night and Sunday with a cold rain…

Flaks will fly not too far away to our north during this time.

Make it a great evening and take care.

Wet Weather and Chilly Temps This Week

Good Monday to one and all. Our day is starting off with a line of strong thunderstorms racing across the Commonwealth. This is ahead of a cold front that is ready to throw on the brakes across southern Kentucky. That allows more rain to develop, leading to a soggy period through the middle of a colder week.

Our early day storms will slowly diminish as they cross the state, with high winds the main player. Some local 1″+ rain amounts are possible early on. Temps drop into the 50s behind the boundary, with gusty winds adding a chill to the air.

Here are the radars to track the storms…

Waves of low pressure develop along our stalled front, bringing additional rains to the region through the middle of the week…

Additional rain amounts of an inch or two will be possible during this time. The wet weather comes with chilly air pushing back into the state from the north and northwest on Tuesday. Watch the temp drop on the NAM…

A seasonal chill remains with us through Wednesday and Thursday, but a colder shot arrives by Friday. You can see that well on the temp departure animation…

Right now, that front looks dry as it moves through here. Highs on Friday may be upper 30s and low 40s after a morning in the low and middle 20s. That’s a cold day, folks.

The next system arrives over the weekend and should bring some chilly rains back into the region…

Notice how close flakes get to our north on Sunday?

I will update things later today, so check back. Make it a good one and take care.
