Sunday Evening Look Ahead

Good evening, folks. We have another active week of weather on the way as multiple systems rumble across the state. This means rounds of showers and storms with some strong storms possible on more than one occasion.

Our first round of rain is rolling in from west to east this evening and will carry us into the first part of Monday. Locally heavy downpours will be noted and I can’t rule out some rumbles of thunder. Those downpours may cause quick rises on a few creeks and streams in the south and southeast…

As that action pulls away late Monday, our focus is on a stronger system moving in for Tuesday. This bowling ball of a low pressure is going to work west-east on top of the region, bringing showers and strong storms…

Areas south of the warm front have the best potential for seeing the strong to severe storms. The SPC continues to highlight much of Kentucky in the risk area…

Temps behind this absolutely take off. Wednesday should be in the 60s to near 70, but Thursday and Friday may feel like May. Highs are deep into the 70s with an 80 possible. Humidity levels will also increase big time. Throw in a slow moving system and the recipe is there for more strong to severe storms and potential heavy rains…

Enjoy the rest of your evening and take care.

More Rain and Strong Storms Ahead

Good Sunday, my weather peeps. After stubborn clouds ambushed my Saturday forecast, it’s time to look ahead toward more active weather. That active weather finds the return of rain later today, with the potential for strong to severe storms in the week ahead.

Temps today do recover from what we had Saturday, but clouds are going to continue to be an issue. A little sun can show up before the rain arrives from west to east this afternoon and evening. Some folks may even hear a rumble of thunder.

We will have to watch areas of southern and southeastern Kentucky. This area has had a ton of rain of late, so it won’t take much to cause local high water issues.

This rain moves away by Monday afternoon as skies brighten from west to east. This is ahead of a more potent system working from west to east Tuesday and Tuesday night. Heavy rain and severe storms are possible with this feature. The Storm Prediction Center has the region in a sever weather risk…

Temps spike deep into the 70s for the second half of the week as we watch a few more storms fire up. That may lead us into another strong to severe storms threat by the weekend.

The GFS rainfall forecast over the next 7 days shows the active pattern…

I will have another update later today. Until then, here are your Sunday tracking toys…

Have a great day and take care.
