July Ends Wet and Cooler Than Normal

Good Tuesday, folks. As hard as it is to believe, Today is the final day of July and we continue our run of cooler than normal temps. Unfortunately, the nice temps are being accompanied by more rounds of showers and storms.

Today’s storms won’t be as strong as the action we had on Monday,  but a few strong storms are still possible. Still, some locally heavy rains will be possible, especially in the central and east…

Temps may struggle to get out of the 70s for many areas.

Similar conditions should be noted on Wednesday as our stubborn system continues to impact the region.

Later this week into the weekend, we have the continued threat for a few showers and storms…

This should keep the cooler than normal numbers going for a while longer.

I do see a temp spike coming for a few days next week…Once that swings through, watch for another round of cooler than normal air to dive back into the bluegrass state with more showers and storms…

Rain totals over the next few weeks keep looking very impressive…

Have a terrific Tuesday and take care.

A Few Strong Storms Today

Good Monday, everyone. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms are increasing today as our big upper low presses in from the west. This system means a lot of wet weather and temps that will run much cooler than normal in the coming days.

As mentioned, showers and storms are on the move today and a few could be strong before all is said and done. Locally heavy rains are also likely with the action going up. Here’s the severe risk from the SPC…

Rounds of showers and thunderstorms will continue through the middle of the week as temps stay cooler than normal.

Unfortunately, another system looks to impact our weather late this week into the coming weekend…

That keeps the wet weather threat going for a while longer and should also act to keep our temps below average.

i have you all set to track today’s storms…

Rain and Storms Ahead

Good Sunday, everyone. Showers and thunderstorms are about to increase as a big upper level system moves in from the west and northwest. This system will bring some decent rains to much of the region over the next several days, to go along with cooler than normal temperatures.

Highs today are back into the pleasant

80s with an increase in clouds and humidity levels. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will then go up from west to east, especially by later today. Here are your tracking toys…

The rain and thunderstorm action continues to increase over the next few days as a big bowling ball upper low moves in…

Locally heavy rain and a few strong storms are possible. A few of the storms may even be severe late. Here’s the Monday outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

Temps will continue to run much cooler than normal during this time…

There’s the chance to get in on additional showers and storms later this week into the upcoming weekend. The GFS rain numbers for the next few weeks continue to be rather impressive…

The more things change, the more they stay the same! 🙂

Make it a great Sunday and take care.

Awesome Weather Before Changes

Good Saturday to one and all. Our weekend is off and running on a very nice weather note, with a taste of September filling the air. This nice weather hangs around for much of the weekend, but some wet weather is on the way by late Sunday into next week.

Highs out there today are generally in the upper 70s to low 80s with a mix of sun and clouds. This comes after starting the day with temps in the upper 50s. Enjoy!

Sunday will see a mix of sun and clouds, with temps and humidity levels coming back up a bit. This increase will be ahead of a developing upper level low slowly working in from the northwest. The map I made several days ago still looks to hold up…

Rounds of showers and storms will kick in from Monday through the middle of the week…

I can’t rule out a few strong storms during this time, but the heavy rainfall will be the biggest player.

Much cooler than normal air will be noted during this time, with a few days in the 70s for highs…

Make it a great Saturday and take care.

A Nice Weekend Before Soggy Weather Returns

Good Friday, everyone. We have a cold front working across the state early today, bringing a broken band of showers and thunderstorms, and some much better weather. This nice air will be with us to start the weekend, but some ugly stuff is lurking early next week.

The early day showers and storms will slow a bit across eastern Kentucky, with the rest of the state seeing a dry afternoon with humidity levels and temps running on the pleasant side. Here are your radars to help track the line in and out of town…

Saturday continues to look awesome with temps in the upper 50s to start and upper 70s to low 80s by the afternoon. Humidity is low and skies are mostly sunny, so soak it up!

Sunday will find temps and humidity levels increasing a bit ahead of a pretty wet setup. This comes courtesy of another slow-moving upper level low. Rounds of showers and storms will become common into early next week…

Locally heavy rains and much cooler than normal temperatures are likely with that kind of setup. That’s the look as we end July and say hello to the month of August courtesy of this deep trough…

Some models are also indicating a second system bringing additional rains our way later next week into the following weekend…

This continues to be part of our cooler than normal second half of summer and the CFS shows this well. Check out the overall departures through the first week of September…

Make it a fantastic Friday and take care.
