Election Day Storms

Good Tuesday, everyone. It’s Election Day in Kentucky and there’s a storm brewing. No, it has nothing to do with voting, but it does have everything to do with the skies above. Scattered showers and thunderstorms continue to rumble across the region.

The greatest concentration of storms will be across the central and eastern parts of the state. Just like the past week or so, there is a small threat for strong to locally severe storms…

Heavy rains may also fire up a few local high water issues before the day is finished.

Wednesday’s weather looks better as our front moves east. This brings a more pleasant brand of air for Wednesday and Thursday. Humidity levels and temps come down, with skies looking mainly bright.

Another system approaches the region from the northwest by the Memorial Day weekend. That will bring an increase in showers and storms, as we watch the Gulf of Mexico. That’s where something tropical is likely to develop and it may directly or indirectly¬†influence our weather.

Watch how the models are very stormy and unsettled all the way through next week…

The ICON Model doesn’t go out quite as far, but you get the same general theme with the potential tropical system and the ensuing storminess…

This amazingly wet year just keeps on keeping on!

Let’s get back to this Tuesday and do a little Election Day storm tracking…
