An Active End To July

Good Monday, everyone. July is quickly running out of days, but the overall weather pattern continues to be active. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms are increasing ahead of a cold front that will also knock our temps back down. As we head into early August, storm chances remain as we wait for a bigger push of cool air.

Today is another typical late July temperature day in the Commonwealth. As the cold front nears, a few showers and thunderstorms will go up, with the greatest concentration across the west. Not everyone sees rain today and it won’t be all day stuff for those who do.

Here are your radars to track the slow increase in showers and storms…

The front moves in here on Tuesday, bringing an increase in showers and storms…

The greatest concentration will be across central and eastern Kentucky.

As I’ve been talking about, the trough splits and leaves a piece behind across the Tennessee Valley into the deep south. That will hang around the rest of the week, spawning a couple of showers and storms. This action may increase this weekend as this system strengthens. At the same time, something tropical may be cranking off the southeast coast. Here’s a look at this potential scenario…

Temps are generally below normal during this time, but if a tropical system gets cranking it could boost the numbers a bit.

Once this mess works itself out, that allows this deepening trough to really get established across the east during the first full week of August…

That’s a pretty cool look for that time of year and it will be interesting to see if the western Atlantic ridge fights a little more than shown. If so, guess what that could mean? A wet setup.

Have a great Monday and take care.
