Good Sunday everyone. ‘We are all witnesses’ is a slogan used by Nike and it is certainly appropriate in describing this historic heat wave across Kentucky. The run of torrid temp we’ve had lately is beyond absurd and , in some case, can only compare to similar runs from the dust bowl year of 1936.
We have another day of triple digit temps taking shape across Kentucky today, but the thermometer may have to battle some scattered storms to get there. If you get a mostly sunny day where you live, chances are you will see 100 degrees or better and more record heat. It’s really that simple today.
The storms that do get cranking today may become strong or severe and that is something for us to keep a close eye on. We need the rain, but don’t need the severe stuff. Speaking of rain… the pattern over the next several days is one that should produce scattered showers and thunderstorms. There will be a lot of moisture available and that means some locally heavy totals will be possible through the middle of the week. Here’s hoping the rain falls on your lawn or garden.
Temps for the week ahead still look very hot with 90s likely. Another run at 100 can’t be ruled out, but that will depend on the scattered boomers and clouds.
I have you all set to track today’s extreme weather…
I will have updates as needed and will blow up your twitter timelines. Follow me on twitter: @kentuckyweather .
Have a great Sunday and take care.
