Better Weather Moves In

Good Tuesday, everyone. The very stormy setup we have been in for the past few weeks is taking a little break over the next day or two, but we still can’t shake the storms. Scattered action will be with us for the middle of the week, with another increase in storms by late this week into the weekend.

Today’s weather looks great with temps generally from 80-85 in many areas. Humidity levels will be lower with a mix of sun and clouds.

The pattern for the rest of the week will see some very steamy conditions moving into the region. Humidity levels are going to feel rather tropical as temps hang out in the 85-90 degree range… Typical for this time of year.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be noted during this time, with a little better chance for the coming weekend. This is when we will need to start watching the northwestern sky for clusters of thunderstorms dropping back in here..

The pattern into the 4th of July week is going to try to send a trough into the eastern part of the country…

I’m not fully sold on that idea. If we just use pattern persistence, one could see that trough not being as deep and instead setting up another wet battle zone across our region.

I promised you a look way down the weather road and I’m here to deliver. The JAMSTEC seasonal run is out for the rest of summer, fall and winter. The model is spot on with the cooler temps of summer, so far. It then shows our region remaining cool in the fall, but much of the country warms. It then drops the hammer in for winter…

It’s a winter forecast made from June… What can go wrong? 😉

Have a great Tuesday and take care.

    Rain being the dominant feature is a good bet for this upcoming winter.

    If we could just have the current, slightly cooler pattern plus excessive precip we have been in since 1st day of June with that beautiful -NAO and -AO, +PNA, we would have a stellar winter…sigh, we get the correct oscillations during summer for a crappy pattern and opposite during winter it seems, BUT STAYS WET NO MATTER WHAT!

    Relatively speaking, I am in one of “driest” areas of the state and region this June with a lot of the precip missing me, but I am still now at 7.23 in for June and 37.44 in for my year-to-date! This is slightly ahead of 2018 for my area as I didnt reach 40 inches last year until late July!

    The Winter pattern Chris presented this morning is shades of the year 1976-77. In the meantime enjoy the nice Summer days ahead.

    Yes the hammer will drop. It will be hammering the rain. Lol.

    Its amazing it can rain almost every day and rain a ton but when it comes to snow, hard to even get a dusting..

  6. Schroeder says:

    In 1976-77 it was dry most of Autumn, which came in mid September with below normal temperatures and below normal precipitation. Then the National Weather Service came out with their Winter forecast the day after Thanksgiving saying that the eastern one third of the country would have a colder and drier Winter. Well all of that panned out and where I was living in southwest Indiana and we didn’t have the cold rains we have now it was all snow, which stayed on the ground through March. If memory serves, we had a snowstorm about every week during January and February and one or two in March and early April. I hope that weather pattern returns again but, I don’t know if it will or not in my lifetime ?

    Adding to the above, the Spring of 1977 was cold and wet and by the Fourth of July it was HOT ! and clear with a high Temperature of 104 degrees. Like it suppose to be not gloomy and rainy. You might ask where did I get this information from so long ago ? The answer is I wrote down all the weather events.

  8. Schroeder says:

    Have a great afternoon and evening everyone !

    I wish these dewpoints would drop.

      Nashville TN dewpoint all the way down to 63 🙂 . We have to take what we can get I suppose, although from time to time we will get dewpoints down into the 50s during the height of summer.

      Nice to get some dry weather for a short while.

    • Terry says:

      Dewpoint is down to 61 in Harlan….took all day but slowly dropped since this morning. Dewpoint was over 70 yesterday and nasty out!

    NWS Paducah has posted about damaging wind events and some weak tornadoes from last Sunday, including an EF-1 that was caught on video destroying a marina in Marshall County KY. Surveys were continuing today so the info will be updated.
