Strong Storms and Heavy Rain For Some

Good Monday, folks. We’ve made it to our Independence Day week, with steamy temps and stormy skies controlling the weather setup. Rounds of storms on Sunday caused some issues across some areas, with today’s action having the potential to do the same thing, but with a little better coverage.

The plume of moisture coming out of the Gulf and into Kentucky is very evident and will aid in the development of more showers and storms today. Some of the storms may pulse up and become locally severe, producing wind damage. The main threat comes from the torrential rains. With an already soaked ground, it won’t take much to cause additional flash flooding. If you live in a flood prone area, watch water levels as storms rumble in.

Here are your storm tracking tools…

Tuesday and the 4th of July will both feature a few storms floating around, but the action really picks up later this week into the weekend. Highs through the 4th will hit the upper 80s and low 90s, but the heat index is going to be MUCH higher. The heat index can reach the danger category on the 4th…

As mentioned, showers and storms become more widespread late week into the weekend as a cold front drops toward us from the north…

Tropical moisture interacting with that boundary may produce additional flash flooding issues. That front may also bring some welcome lower temps our way…

Make it a great Monday and take care.
