Steamy Temps Usher In Some Storms

Good Thursday to one and all. Our weather pattern is transitioning back into one that looks and feels like typical summertime in the bluegrass state. Our temps the next few days will be around normal, but the humidity levels will really take off, leading to scattered storms.

Highs today are deep into the 80s into many areas, but some clouds and scattered storms will help out in the afternoon..

Storms will be a little move active Friday as we await the arrival of a cold front dropping in from the northwest. This blows into town on Saturday with better coverage of showers and storms. Some of these may be a bit on the strong side…

That front decides it want’s to spend the 4th of July holiday visiting relatives in Kentucky, and that means we will be on guard for additional rounds of storms working from west to east. The European Model is amped up with the heavy rain threat…

In looking at this setup a little closer, it could easily bring a local flash flood threat through the middle of next week.

A similar pattern may actually try to hold on through the first half of the month.

Have a great day and take care.

    With 2 days to go, Lexington’s June average temperature is 0.1 degrees below normal. Lexington hasn’t had a below normal month for average temperature since May of 2016.

    Better than above normal as far as I’am concerned. I just wish we would get out of this shower pattern.

  3. Paul Krueger says:

    As long as it doesn’t bring storms like northern Illinois had, I’m fine with this pattern.

    Id like a dry spell, 90 degree heat, two weeks straight, maybe a stray shower or two in the middle of the night.

    Louisville International’s heat island effect may preserve its string of above normal June’s for an 8th straight year. I call it ‘heat cheat’. Just down the road at Bowman Field, another reporting station for the NWS, is coming in at below normal for the month. A drier month for both locations, but the one with the most concrete wins the temperature war. I really wish we had a better representation of our overall climate.

    Was expecting it to rain, but not this hard, get home from work and get soaked in 5 seconds running from my car to my house
