Stormy Setup Though Next Week

Good Friday, folks. Scattered showers and thunderstorms continue to crank today across central and eastern Kentucky. This is all part of a stormy setup that looks to hang tough into next week. Even as temps steam up this weekend, another shot of cool is aimed right at us next week.

Just like Thursday, any shower or storm out there today can put down a lot of water in a short amount of time. That can lead to local high water issues developing, with the best chance across the east.

Here are your storm tracking toys…

Steamy temps are back for the weekend, but nothing I would call uncommon for this time of year. Humidity levels will be very high and that spawns a few afternoon storms on Saturday. The storm risk for Sunday appears greater as additional moisture works in and a deep trough approaches from the west. That sets us up for rounds of storms through the first half of next week…

Heavy rainfall is a good bet during this time and the setup is primed for cloud bursts that can cause local flash flooding conditions.

This is one deep trough moving in behind this for the middle and end of next week…

Temps come way back down to below normal during this time and we may see a few more days with highs only in the 70s.

The overall pattern is not a hot one for our region. However, it is a pattern that is likely to turn very stormy and wet over the next few weeks.

The GFS shows our region in the much above normal rainfall…

The average from the Ensembles also show the wet weather…

When all is said and done. June will go down as a very tepid first month of summer.

Have a great day and take care.
