Cool and Damp Weather Continues

Good Sunday, folks. A hearty Happy Mother’s Day to all out moms out there in KWC blog land! Mother Nature isn’t doing the moms any favors today as gusty winds, cool temps and scattered showers continue. This cooler than normal pattern is locked in for several more days.

Let’s begin with what’s going on out there today. Rain continues to add up across southeastern Kentucky, where flooding issues may very well start the day. For the rest of the region, a few showers will be noted, with a gradual decrease from west to east as the day wears on…

Temps may have a tough time cracking 60 in some areas as northwesterly winds add a chill to the air.

Another system drops in here on Monday, bringing more gusty winds and scattered showers. This will help keep many thermometers locked into the upper 50s and low 60s for highs…

As skies clear up Monday night, temps drop to around 40 degrees…

Some of our colder valleys may drop into the upper 30s. The rest of the day will feature a mix of sun and clouds and temps in the 60s.

The northwesterly flow will bring another chance for showers and storms to town by Wednesday…

After that works through, temps should rebound toward normal for later in the week into next weekend. The European Weeklies go through the third week of June and have the overall normal to cooler than normal for much of the country…

It also keeps the majority of the country above normal with rainfall…

That’s impressive to see that much real estate being wetter than normal. Unfortunately, the wetter than normal never gets the love that the new low standard the weather community has come up with for a “drought”. Ask any farmer and they’ll tell you that too much rain can have just a big, or bigger, impact than dry weather.

Have a great Mother’s Day and take care.
