Showers and Storms On The Increase

Good Sunday, folks. Showers and storms are rumbling from west to east today and will kick off a cool (for the time of year) and active period. While temps stay well below normal, rounds of rain will be rolling our way through the week ahead. I’ve even got a long range model showing this pattern locking in through much of September.

Showers and storms will be across western Kentucky early today, with this action rolling eastward as the day wears on. This should finally reach eastern parts of the state by evening…

Heavy rain and storms will be likely tonight into Monday, with 1″-2″ rain amounts possible in some areas. The best chance of that appears to be in the south. Temps today and Monday are going to be cooler than normal. Today, the east can hit the low 80s outside the rain, with 70s for areas getting the drops.. Monday’s numbers may find everyone only in the 70s.

Tuesday will find the area in between rain makers, as temps run in the upper 70s to low 80s. Rain returns on Wednesday and keeps coming at us in waves for the rest of the week, into the weekend and early next week…

It’s NOT going to rain all the time, and some will go a few days between rain chances, but this is a very active setup for an otherwise quiet time of year.

The longer range from the Euro takes us through the middle of September and shows above normal rainfall during this time…

And the average temp through this time is on the cool side of normal…

Sorry, summer fans!

Make it a great day and take care.

    So the odds of an eclipse bust due to cloud cover are increasing? That would be quite disappointing if it were to happen.

    I am shocked by how cool it is! We went to the lake yesterday evening and after swimming with the sun setting it was downright cold! I have a hard time believing the heat is over for the summer though…we shall see!!

    “Sorry, summer fans!”

    That’s OK Chris, as long as we get our revenge again this winter. 😉

      Hope it happens but I bet the jet stream shifts way north around November and Chris will be telling us all sorry winter fans. That’s the way our luck runs in KY

    Every month since May of 2016 has been above normal temp wise in both Louisville and Lexington. This month is going to break that trend—it would take a major heat wave late in the month for that not to happen.

    Mother Nature doesn’t have a calendar. Time of year means nothing to her. Humans have categorized seasons and during our brief time on Earth, we haven’t seen nnnnuthin yet.

    Wettest 24-hour period for Indiana on this date in 1905 at 10.5″ near Princeton…been there, nice town.

    To set the record straight, you may remember that last winter there was almost no snow, and also very little bitter cold. That was, generally, a Good Thing in my view.
