Steamy Temps and Some Storms

Good Friday, folks. It’s a true summer air mass rolling into the region and it’s going to hang around for a while. This steamy air will be accompanied by a few showers and thunderstorms going up. It’s a pattern threatening to lock in for the next 2 weeks before going back to cool again.

Our Thursday evening cluster of thunderstorms arrived right on cue and kicked the snot out of many computer models that just couldn’t see it coming. Luckily, I’ve seen this pattern a few times and ignored those models. 🙂

A corridor of thunderstorms will be working across the Ohio Valley today, but much of the action is to our north. Still, we need to watch northern and eastern Kentucky to see if some of those storms slip a littler farther south. Here’s today’s Severe Weather Outlook from the SPC…

Here are your Friday radars to track anything that shows up where you live…

 

Temps today will be deep into the 80s with humidity levels on the rise. The steamy numbers continue into Saturday with a few storms going up during the afternoon…

A cold front in the plains slowly heads our way on Sunday. That brings a broken line of showers and strong storms from west to east across the state. The very warm setup continues through next week, with another front making a run at us by the middle of the week. That should bring another chance for big boomers.

Here’s how the GFS sees it from Sunday through next week…

Have a great one and take care.
