Steam and Storms Then A Big Change

Good Tuesday to one and all. Scattered storms are back in our weather picture today, with the 4th of July potentially being the hottest feeling day since the summer of 2012. The sky high humidity is going to do a serious number on us for a few more days.

Let’s begin with today and roll forward. Scattered showers and storms will develop and slowly rumble across the state. Just like the past few days, any storm that goes up may briefly produce high winds. Torrential rainfall may cause additional high water issues on a local scale. Basically, yada yada yada.

Track away…

Outside of today’s storms, the heat index will range from the upper 90s to low 100s.

Those numbers may pale in comparison to what’s on the way for our Independence Day. High temps range from 90-95 for most of the state, with a heat index topping 105 during the peak heating of the afternoon…

A storm or two will develop in the heat and humidity, especially in the afternoon and evening hours.  For those planning to be outdoors on the 4th, and most of us are, plan on taking a lot of water breaks.

Thursday may feature triple digit heat index numbers once again, but more clouds and scattered storms should keep things under what the 4th delivers.

Those storms then really ramp up on Friday as a cold front drops in from the north…

Strong storms and torrential rains may accompany this boundary, with much cooler air by the weekend. Highs for Saturday and Sunday are mainly from 80-85 with much lower humidity levels. Lows by Sunday morning may drop into the upper 50s for some…

Have a great Tuesday and take care.

    It will probably only last a few days, but the cooler/drier weather will be a nice break!

    The warmest Independence Day that I ever experience was in 1977. The high temperature reached 104 degrees and I was in the field tending to my nursery stock. No one complained as they were enjoying this special day for our country.

    NWS in Louisville just not on the same page as CB. CB tweeted out models have been overdoing the temperatures this week and the NWS in there afternoon discussion says temperatures have been a bit warmer than advertised. NWS going on the high side of guidance for tomorrow’s temperatures. NWS not that thrilled with the upcoming cool down. NWS agree with slightly lower temperatures and the humidity will take a break for a few days but that’s about all. Early next week upper level ridging looks to come right back with dew points right back into the +70 category once again.
