Good Wednesday to one and all. It’s another active weather day taking shape across Kentucky as rounds of showers and thunderstorms continue. These storms are going to be an issue through the long 4th of July holiday period.
As always, let’s start with today and roll forward. Clusters of showers and storms will increase this afternoon and evening. Just like what we had on Tuesday, some of the storms may be strong or severe and put down a ton of rain. Here’s the current Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…
Damaging winds and large hail are the main severe weather threats today. These same storms can drop a few inches of rain in under an hour, so watch for flash flood issues.
What you see today is what you’re going to continue to see through the 4th of July holiday weekend. Strong storms and flash flooding issues are possible each and every day, so please keep that in mind. Some of our 4th of July parades, fireworks shows and cookouts may be impacted by the storms. Have a backup plan to be safe.
There’s a cooler pattern settling in behind the stormy weather. Watch for a trough to dig in across the eastern half of the country later next week…
That’s the same one many of the seasonal models have been hinting at for some time now.
As always, I leave you with your storm tracking tools for the day…
Possible Watch Areas
Make it a great day and take care.
