Good Sunday, everyone. First and foremost… let’s give it up for the weather we’ve had out there over this holiday weekend. This really is as good as it gets for the 4th of July weekend. Heck… we would be jumping for joy if we had these temps on Labor Day weekend.
The focus of the forecast now turns to an increasing threat for showers and thunderstorms in the coming days. The pattern is also showing the potential for additional shots of cool air over the next few weeks.
Let’s start with today and hit the fast forward button. Highs will be in the low and mid 80s in central and eastern Kentucky with upper 80s in the west. Humidity levels and high clouds will increase as the day wears on.
A few storms will go up on Monday and some of these could be on the strong side. Muggy air pushes back in with highs in the mid to upper 80s for many. The threat for widespread showers and storms cranks up for Tuesday into Wednesday as a cold front moves into the area.
The models differ on what to do with this front. Some keep it around, while others push it farther to the south. The closer it stays to Kentucky, the better the rain chances for later in the week into the coming weekend. The Canadian Model is going all in on heavy rain over the next week and change…
Our friend, the European Model is going with more of a push of cooler air causing the front to drop to out south for the end of the week. Check out the below normal readings form that model by Wednesday…
Have a great Sunday and take care.
