Good Saturday everyone. Widespread drought denting rains have been working across much of the state over the past few days. Not everyone has been getting in on the act, but this is only the start of a rather stormy period across the state. Everyone should finish the weekend with a nice drink of water as boomers do their thing.
Much of southern, eastern and parts of central Kentucky have already picked up 1″-3″ of rain over the past two days. Others… not so much. Take a look at the sharp cutoff in the radar rain totals for Thursday and Friday…
Areas of northern and western Kentucky have been shut out, so far. That changes today with widespread showers and storms going up across the entire state. These storms will be slow movers and that will combine with a tropical atmosphere to produce some very heavy rain. This may lead to localized flash flooding problems.
The forecast for Sunday looks very similar to today with storms blowing up during the afternoon and evening.
The weather all the way through next week will feature more of the same… a tropical feel with a daily threat for showers and storms. I wouldn’t be surprised to get into an environment that features more in the way of storm clusters working in from the west or northwest.
Let’s get back to the storm tracking of today…
Have a great Saturday and take care.
