Another Day With Rounds of Storms

Good Tuesday to one and all. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms continue to rumble across the Commonwealth, bringing the potential for local flash flooding. Many areas have already been soaked over the past few days, and more torrential rains may fall today.

The storms come at us in clusters from northwest to southeast. Obviously, there will be several dry hours between the storm rounds. Still, when it does rain, it’s going to come down in a hurry. The concern continues to be for repeat storm action over some of the same areas that have picked up heavy rains in recent days. Those are the places to watch for some high water issues developing.

Just like the past few days, a few of these storms may also be strong or severe. Here’s today’s outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

Storms will also be around into Wednesday, with a few strong storms possible…

The action scales back some by Thursday and Friday as the heat makes a run at us from the west. Areas of western Kentucky may be deep into the 90s, with cooler numbers in the east…

Those hot temps may surge east into the weekend, but some thunderstorms will try to beat those numbers back to the west and southwest. Those storms should be followed by a cold front with more storms and cooler air early next week…

    Off and on moderate to heavy thundershowers the last four hours in north Richmond and more to come. Maybe a 2004 summer has a chance after all.

    Thanks Chris for the update. Yesterday a thunderstorm collapse over Green County which resulted in an excessive amount of rain in a very short time. I expect today or sometime this week Taylor County ( my county ) will receive the same or maybe not. Typical summer, but the high humidity and dew point are exceeding the high temperatures. It could be a lot worse with temperatures in the upper nineties. That may happen this weekend ? Have a great day everyone.

    Heat indices may approach upper 90’s but actually air temperatures will be in the lower 90’s. Most areas have received enough rain to keep the actual air temperatures peaking out in the lower 90’s either way still hot.
