Big Changes Next Week

Good Saturday to one and all. It’s a hot and humid start to the weekend, but some hefty weather changes are on the way next week. Those changes bring several cold fronts into our region, leading to a much cooler overall pattern taking shape for the rest of July and into August.

Highs today are generally in the low 90s with some higher numbers showing up in the typical “hot spots”. Humidity levels will make it feel a little hotter. A few storms try to develop by the afternoon and evening. Track away…

Scattered showers and storms will increase for Sunday as steamy temps roll on. A few of the late day storms may be a little on the strong side, and those strong storms return on Monday. Some heavy rains will be noted with this action along and ahead of a cold front dropping in…

Cooler air shows up along and behind that boundary…

Another system then develops and works in here by Thursday and Friday, bringing more showers and thunderstorms. There is some indication of a system trying to close off near us…

That would certainly keep the below normal temps coming. As a matter of fact, the CFS continues to see the cooler than normal rest of July…

Have a great day and take care.

    Thanks Chris for the update. As usual an interesting blog this morning. I will be staying indoors today to avoid the continuing heat wave. The end of next week looks to be a more comfortable weather pattern ? Have a great Saturday everyone.

    I look forward to some below normal summer temps as we know that = comfortable! Also, it has been drier in Harlan over the last two weeks and I could use a “few drops” next week but I don’t need 10 more inches of rain☺

    Thanks Chris. A bit cooler will be nice but not too cool. After all, it is still summertime! Have a great day everyone.

    Hard to believe it has already been exactly three years since the destructive flooding in Johnson County, KY. Some of the worst damage was near the town of Flat Gap where 4 people lost their lives. Goes to show that everyone (especially those in low lying areas) needs to heed flood warnings. At least one of the deaths was a motorist in a car. As the saying goes, Turn Around – Don’t Drown.

    Johnson County was also hard hit from the March 2 2012 tornado outbreak. Two fatalities occurred in Johnson County and the same tornado had earlier rampaged through the business district of Salyersville in Magoffin County.

    Since 2008, area wide and especially eastern KY, we have had a lot of flash flood events. Although I am a little over 100 miles south of Johnson Co., I have seen a lot of flooding in Harlan in recent years. It seems we have two flood seasons were most flood/flash floods occur: Winter and summer.
