Summer Pattern Settles In

Good Wednesday to one and all. We have a full blown summer pattern taking shape across the bluegrass state. This setup means steamy temps will be common, but the thunderstorm risk is also going to be around. This doesn’t look terribly widespread, but a few boomers are likely to crash a few parties through Memorial Day Weekend.

Let us begin with today and roll forward. Temperatures are in the mid and upper 80s for much of the state with a 90 showing up in the west and south. Humidity levels will be way up, too.

A broken line of showers and thunderstorms will be possible in the west and central parts of the state. I suppose a strong storm or two is possible, but the dynamics with this system have really died out. Here are your tracking toys to be safe…

Thursday is another very steamy day, but may throw a few more showers and storms at us compared to today…

That’s with a weak boundary that gets close to northern Kentucky before putting the brakes on and sliding back to the north. That means the steamy air rolls through Friday and into Memorial Day Weekend. By Sunday and Memorial Day, that boundary may come back south and give us an increase in storm action…

While the warm pattern should carry us through the close of May, the pattern changes up to kick off the month of June.

Have a wonderful Wednesday and take care.
