Storms On The Way

Good Tuesday, everyone. Showers are pulling away from the region and temps are on the increase for the rest of the week. Unfortunately, storm chances are about to really increase and that could lead to heavy rain and a few strong storms.

A few breaks in the clouds are showing up this afternoon and evening as any leftover shower moves away from the southeast…

A few storms return for Wednesday as temps climb into the 60s. If we can get a few rays of sun in the south, 70 is within reach. There is a low-end risk for a few strong or locally severe storms in central and western Kentucky:

A powerful storm will be rolling through the plains on Thursday, dragging a cold front in here on Friday. Temps hit the 70s for Thursday and Friday, but showers and storms will become more of an issue. We’ve been setting the stage for the possibility of severe storms and we are seeing that threat in the west on Thursday…

That risk area should get pushed east Thursday night and early Friday.

Heavy rainfall is likely during this time and the models certainly back that up, though the totals do differ on each run…

We will get a chilly break with the weekend weather, but that may only carry over into the first day or so of next week. Milder air means more rounds of storms on the way through the next few weeks. The GFS rainfall totals continue to put out region in the bullseye during this time…

Don’t pay much attention to the totals, but this is more about the consistent placement of the stormiest weather and heaviest rain.

Enjoy the rest of the day and take care.

The More Things Change…

Good Tuesday, gang. We have a few showers and storms on the move early today, but the focus is on the stormy setup on the way for the rest of the week. It’s part of a pattern that is loaded with quite a bit of rain and a wild temperature ride.

Let us begin with today and the showers and a few storms rolling across parts of the state. This action is rolling across the southern half of the state, especially. This will wind down during the afternoon as temps reach the 50s with a few rays of sun showing up in the west and north. Here are your radars to walk you through the day…

Temps will really ramp up over the next few days with the 60s for Wednesday, and the 70s for Thursday and Friday. A few rounds of showers and storms increase for Wednesday and Thursday, with the potential for strong storms and heavy rain. The greatest potential may come along and ahead of the actual front Thursday night and Friday.

The GFS is putting down some hefty totals through Friday…

Much colder air sweeps in behind the front for Saturday and Sunday. Temps will be much chillier, but the pattern looks mainly dry.

Temps climb quickly early next week and this will be ahead of additional rounds of showers and storms. The GFS total rainfall for the next 2 weeks continues to bullseye out region for the highest totals…

I will have another update later today. Make it a good one and take care.
