Scattered Storms Usher In July

Good Saturday and welcome to July. The 7th month of the year is upon us and it’s starting out with scattered showers and storms moving through. This setup is likely to carry us on and off through the first week of the month, and continues the theme of the summer.

Highs today will be in the 80-85 degree range with a cold front right on top of us. This front will fire up a few rounds of showers and storms, and a few could be strong across the central and east. No, today isn’t going to be a washout with wall to wall rain. 🙂 Some areas to the west and north may wind up in pretty good shape.

Here are your tracking tools for the day:


Sunday looks pretty nice with highs in the 80s and low humidity levels. There is a small chance for a shower or storm in the south and west, but many of us stay dry.

Temps on Monday are back into the middle and upper 80s with scattered storms going up. The threat for scattered storms will carry us into the 4th of July…

With a disturbance slowly crossing the area Wednesday into Thursday, more rounds of heavy rain producing storms will be possible…

After that moves through, temps will spike by the end of the week into the start of next weekend, but another trough digs in with slightly cooler air by late weekend. This progressive pattern will likely persist through summer, brining ample amounts of rain. The latest CFS rainfall forecast through the middle of August shows this well…

That same model continues to indicate the cooler shots win the battle over any shots of heat. Here’s the what the model shows through the middle of August…

Make it a great day and take care.

    Well officially Louisville ended the month of June with just a touch above normal temperatures. That’s 13 months in a row with above normal temps for Louisville. However this would not happen if the official temperature reading wasn’t taken at the airport. Smh

    It might seem out of place to mention this, but the snow year did end yesterday, June 30. Jackson recorded 4.8″, its least amount of annual snowfall since records have been kept, beginning in the early 1980’s.
    Louisville’s 2.7″ was the least amount since 1988-1989.
    Lexington’s 3.4″ was the least amount since 1991-1992.

      Makes you feel any better we had a ton of 7 day out GFS computer model phantom snowstorms this past winter. If we take the 7 day GFS phantom snowstorm predictions at face value this past winter we all should of had at least 50 inches of snow this year.
