Scattered Storms Return

Good Saturday and welcome to the final weekend of August. After a very nice past several days, we are heading back into a rather steamy and stormy pattern to close out the month. Scattered boomers are on the move this weekend and will only increase as we head into the new week.

Not everyone will see showers and storms today, but we will be watching the northwestern sky for the action to drop into Kentucky. Any shower or storm that goes up could put down torrential rains before moving on.

Track away…

Scattered storms will continue to develop into Sunday as very steamy air continues to move into the state. Areas of the west can make a run at 90, with low and middle 80s in the east.

Locally heavy rains are possible this weekend and that’s showing up on some of the model rain numbers…

Does that surprise anyone? Look at how far above normal we are on the year…

Yep, those are some 20″ above normal rain spots showing up.

Steamy temps will be standard into early next week, with a scattering of showers and storms continuing. The action will really increase by the middle and end of the week. Tropical moisture is streaming in from the Gulf of Mexico as a trough inches closer from the northwest. The end result could be rounds of heavy rain producing showers and storms through the start of the Labor Day Weekend…

Another system may dive in around Labor Day, with some additional action into the first week of September…

We will also need to watch the Gulf or the southeastern coast for potential tropical development.

Have a great Saturday and take care.
