Much Better Weather Ahead

Good Saturday to one and all. June is off and running on a nice weather note for the most part, but things are about to get a whole lot better. Much cooler and drier air is on the way for the next several days. We may even have a hint of a fall feel into early next week. Beyond that… Things get stormy again.

Speaking of storms, we could see a few develop in the afternoon and evening as a cold front drops in from the northwest…

Highs today will reach the upper 70s to low 80s in many areas.

Our front may still be around to spark a shower or storm through the first half of Sunday, but the awesome air wins the battle. Temps are mainly in the 70s for highs with increasing amounts of sun from northwest to southeast.

This unleashes temps that will be MUCH cooler than normal…

Lows Monday morning may hit the 40s in many areas. Afternoon temps may struggle to 70 across the central and eastern parts of the state, even with mostly sunny skies.

Tuesday looks like another fantastic weather day and you need to soak it up because changes show up after that. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms look to kick back in for the middle and end of next week. That action may continue through the following weekend, with the models spitting out some impressive totals during this time…

The European Ensembles show a wetter than normal pattern for much of the country over the next few weeks. Notice how they are hinting at the potential for western Gulf of Mexico tropical moisture to get involved…

Have a sensational Saturday and take care.

    I think what we see above is what we see lock in most of the summer myself with excessive rain and humidity ruling the roost!

    Although Harlan has been MUCH DRIER lately since March compared to areas to my north and west, I am still over the 30 inch mark on the year and believe I will make a run towards 2018’s annual total before all is said and done.

    My brother in law and his family are visiting this weekend from northern Indiana and he told me that the farmers have not planted anything because of the excessive rainfall over the last month. Still not too late though for late corn if you can find the seed ? I agree with Chris and Terry that the stormy conditions will return for the rest of the Summer but, I hope that we will gets some cool dry breaks from time to time.

    We need to watch the southwest Gulf of Mexico as there is a 40% chance of Tropical activity developing in that area. This is the first of the tropical storm season.
