Strong Storms Kick Off A Stormy Setup

Good Sunday and Happy Father’s Day! We have a pretty active storm day taking shape across the region as we go into a pattern loaded with storms. This action is ahead of another deep trough digging in here for the middle and end of the week. That will bring much cooler air back into Kentucky.

There’s a weak low spinning into the region from the west today. This will bring bands of showers and storms from west to east across the state. These bands may even be spiraling around this low, so that will be interesting to see.

Strong to severe storms will also be possible for much of the area. Here’s the latest Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center today…

Damaging winds and large hail are the main threats. We will also be mindful of the very low-end potential for a spin up.

These storms may also produce flash flooding as they work through. A quick 1″-3″ of rain can fall in localized areas, so we will watch for that. Remember the cloud burst potential talked about here several days ago? That’s the setup we see our there today through Tuesday night…

A few strong to severe storms will still be possible.

All of this is being pushed by a the deep trough arriving from the northwest. That will be followed by another trough next weekend…

That takes our temps back to below normal with a few days in the 70s.

Beyond that, we find a continuation of the stormy pattern pattern through the first few weeks of July.

Here are your tracking toys for the day…
