Good Sunday everyone. Showers and thunderstorms have been doing their thing over the past several days and that is helping put a dent in the drought. Saturday’s action hit a lot of the areas that had been left out from the previous days of rain. Patience is a good thing!
This pattern isn’t close to shutting down and we have more boomers in store for the state today and this action may be similar to what we had Saturday. Storms will hit their peak in the afternoon and early evening hours and may drop another inch on some areas.
The tropical air mass will continue into the week ahead and that means some afternoon storms Monday and Tuesday. Temps will begin to ramp up toward the low 90s during this time.
A cold front is slated to arrive on the scene by Thursday and this front looks to be very active. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms will be likely from late Wednesday through Friday across Kentucky. The GFS…
Strong storms and very heavy rains will be possible during this time as that front plows into a super-duper hot and humid environment. Yes, that setup is likely to bring more beneficial rainfall to much of the region. I wouldn’t be surprised to see parts of the eastern half of the state removed from drought status after this week. Yes… I said it.
Here’s our beloved regional radar to track today’s storms…
Have a great Sunday and take care.
