From Summer Sizzle To Storms

Good Saturday, everyone. Mother’s Day Weekend is here and the weather is doing a pretty good impersonation of summer. Temps are on the steamy side of the thermometer, but a stormy setup appears ready to kick in. A few of those storms may even crank before the weekend is over.

Highs out there today will top out from the middle 80s to around 90 degrees. A mix of steamy sun and clouds will be noted, but I can’t totally rule out a storm impacting northern Kentucky. This is the area closest to some big storms rumbling across parts of Indiana and Ohio. That’s where severe weather is possible today…

As that front sags a little farther south late Sunday, the potential for strong or locally severe storms may get into parts of the state. Here’s the Mother’s Day Severe Weather Outlook…

Highs on Mother’s Day look to be very similar to what we have out there today, with another digit or two on top. Sizzle, sizzle. Record highs are showing up on the European for Sunday and Monday…

The setup for next week continues to look very warm and humid, leading to rounds of showers and thunderstorms. A boundary sets up shop across the Ohio Valley, with a deep supply of moisture coming at us from the south…

Some strong storms and heavy rains are very possible in that setup. Check out the 2 week rainfall numbers on the GFS…

I have you all set to track today’s storms to our north…

Make it a great Saturday and take care.
