Flash Flood Threat Continues

Good Wednesday, everyone. An amazing amount of rain has fallen across the bluegrass state over the past several days, bringing significant flooding issues for some. These same storms have also been bringing wind damage for some areas. Guess what today has in store for us? Yep… more storms that can bring high winds and flooding rains.

The ground is waterlogged and cannot hold much more rain, so it won’t take very much at all to create additional high water issues. As mentioned, a few of the storms may be strong or severe with damaging wind the main player.

Track the day…

Thursday will bring the threat for northwest to southeast moving storms across the western half of the state. Some of these may be severe. After that, we see heat and humidity moving in, but the soaked ground and green, lush vegetation will temper the numbers. Throw in a plume of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico and you get a daily threat for a few showers and storms this weekend. Then a weak front settles in leading up to the 4th of July…

This stormy summer shows little signs of letting up. Check out the new European Model rainfall anomalies through early August…

Yes, the wettest departure from normal is right on top of Kentucky. You were given fair warning there would be no shortage of summer thunderstorms and rain. 😉

With a developing El Nino, temps tend to skew cooler as the summer wears on. That shows up on the European Model through early August…

Make it a great day and take care.
