Watching The Heavy Rain Threat

Good Wednesday, everyone. We are back into an all too familiar pattern as rounds of showers and thunderstorms target the bluegrass state for the foreseeable future. These rounds of storms will bring a lot of rain our way over the next week and change. In addition to the rains, the much cooler pattern we have been ‘hyping’ is also moving in. 😉

Our front continues to drop in from the north and will become stationary right on top of Kentucky, leading to the clusters of storms. The map from a few days ago is holding up well…

An area of low pressure develops along this front and rolls through the Ohio Valley later this week into the start of the weekend. That will really increase the rain and thunderstorm action that takes us into early next week…



This is a setup that can cause several rounds of flash flooding across parts of Kentucky and surrounding states. Keep a close eye on creeks and streams when the storms roll in!

Check out the potent upper level trough moving in…

That leads to significantly cooler temps, just as the pattern has been suggesting for well over a week now. Temps may not get out of the 70s on a few occasions. Check out the below normal temps showing up into next week…

Here are your tracking tools for the day…
