Strong Storms and Flash Flooding Possible

Good Monday, everyone. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms continue continue to roll across the bluegrass state, bringing the increased threat for flash flooding. These storms may also produce local high winds and hail. It’s a stormy pattern that’s locked in for the foreseeable future.

Storms come at us in waves from northwest to southeast this week. Give the potential for repeat action over the same areas, the flash flood potential is elevated. The exact track of each storm complex will determine who has the best threat for high water issues to develop. Here’s my initial look at who has the best shot at flash flooding…

In addition to the high water risk, some of the storms may be strong or severe. Wind damage will be the primary severe threat to watch for. Here’s today’s Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

    Thanks Chris for the update. Late yesterday evening I notice a ” shelf cloud ” moving from north to south heading in our direction. As a result, when the storm approached the winds begin to increase and very heavy rain fell for about an hour without lighting or thunder. This particular storm I believe was part of a complex that started in central Indiana late yesterday morning and moved south into central Kentucky and collapsed over the northern part of Taylor County. Unofficially, I would say more than an inch of rain fell. Is this going to be our summer ? I certainly hope not ! The good news is that scientist that study the solar cycles are saying that Autumn like weather will arrive earlier this year. I’m ready for Autumn right now as I’ve had enough of this heat and humidity and rain every other day. Have a great day everyone.

      I love summer storms like what you described and Northern Kentucky has been missing out recently. Autumn can wait until October.
