Storms Start To Increase… Again

Good Thursday, folks. It’s another steamy day, but a few showers and thunderstorms are on the increase. This is a sign of things to come as our steamy and stormy setup kicks in for the long haul. The boomers are actually going to increase as we roll into our 4th of July week.

As always, let’s start with today and roll forward. Highs today will generally be in the mid and upper 80s with a 90 or so in some areas. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will go up, especially this afternoon. A few strong storms will be noted and those can put down locally heavy rains. I will get your tracking toys in a bit.

The forecast through the rest of the week and into the weekend looks very similar to what we have going on out there today. Scattered boomers and steamy temps will rule the weather world during this time.

The pattern for the big 4th of July week continues to look like one that can produce rounds of showers and storms dropping in from the west and northwest…

The models are now coming around to this idea…

Obviously, that’s not a very good look as we head into one of the biggest holidays of the entire year.

Behind that setup, the Ensembles continue to advertise cooler air taking control once again…

Let’s get back to where we are today. I have you guys all set to do some Thursday thunder tracking…

Steamy Temps Finally Arrive

Good Wednesday, everyone. Normal summer temps are finally arriving in the bluegrass state bringing some steam to the region. This steamy air is likely to hold through the weekend as scattered storms slowly kick back in. The stormy skies may become more prominent this weekend into the start of July.

Temps out there today are in the mid and upper 80s for many. Humidity levels are on the increase and there’s a slight chance for a shower or storm going up, especially in the west. Here’s regional radar to help you out…

Thursday and Friday will see temps closing in on 90 for many areas. The wet ground and lush vegetation will make it hard for temps to get too toasty, but that does mean more humidity around. Scattered storms will go up, especially during the afternoon and evening hours.

That’s a trend that will carry us through the weekend, with a slight uptick in the amount of thunderstorm action.

The focus on your 4th of July week continues to be on a better potential for rounds of storms to return to the region. That’s something I alluded to with my last update and it’s looking a little more like another battle zone takes shape around here. You can see that on the GFS…

The model is starting to increase the rainfall numbers over the next few weeks…

The more things change, the more they… Awwww… Forget it. 🙂

Have a great Wednesday and take care.

Better Weather Moves In

Good Tuesday, everyone. The very stormy setup we have been in for the past few weeks is taking a little break over the next day or two, but we still can’t shake the storms. Scattered action will be with us for the middle of the week, with another increase in storms by late this week into the weekend.

Today’s weather looks great with temps generally from 80-85 in many areas. Humidity levels will be lower with a mix of sun and clouds.

The pattern for the rest of the week will see some very steamy conditions moving into the region. Humidity levels are going to feel rather tropical as temps hang out in the 85-90 degree range… Typical for this time of year.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be noted during this time, with a little better chance for the coming weekend. This is when we will need to start watching the northwestern sky for clusters of thunderstorms dropping back in here..

The pattern into the 4th of July week is going to try to send a trough into the eastern part of the country…

I’m not fully sold on that idea. If we just use pattern persistence, one could see that trough not being as deep and instead setting up another wet battle zone across our region.

I promised you a look way down the weather road and I’m here to deliver. The JAMSTEC seasonal run is out for the rest of summer, fall and winter. The model is spot on with the cooler temps of summer, so far. It then shows our region remaining cool in the fall, but much of the country warms. It then drops the hammer in for winter…

It’s a winter forecast made from June… What can go wrong? 😉

Have a great Tuesday and take care.
