Good Tuesday to one and all. Showers and thunderstorms pounded much of the western part of the state with high winds and hail Monday. These storms did bring some much needed rain to the region and managed to overdo it causing flash flooding. The setup over the next few days is one that should see this action spreading farther eastward across the commonwealth.
Highs Monday hit the low 100s again in the west with central and eastern Kentucky staying in the “cool” mid and upper 90s. That will continue to be the temp trend for most of the week as the heat hangs tough.
The showers and thunderstorms will be scattered to numerous at times today and Wednesday. Locally heavy rains will accompany the storms and some of them could become severe with damaging winds and hail. Most of the state should see a round or two of storms before the week is finished. That’s a gorgeous thing and should help us out some with the drought.
Many of the models are doing their darndest to send the heat back to the west and put us into a much more active weather pattern for the next few weeks. The GFS is one of those models and has some decent rains over the next two weeks…
I would take that pattern and run with it. Let’s wait and see before getting too excited.
Here’s your daily dose of weather trackers…

I will have updates as needed. Have a great Tuesday and take care.
