Heavy Rain and Strong Storms Return

Good Saturday, everyone. As expected, our break in the rain didn’t last long as the drops are back in the bluegrass state. Heavy rain and a few thunderstorms are rumbling across the state today, with some nasty showing up for our Sunday.

Rain and storms overspread the region today as low pressure works right on top of the state. Heavy rain will be possible, with local 1″-2″ amounts showing up through Sunday. There’s also a low-end risk for a few strong storms across the south and southeast.

Here’s the current Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

Wraparound showers are going to hang tough on Sunday across central and eastern Kentucky. This is going to absolutely crush the temps with many areas potentially staying in the 40s. Farther west, clearing skies allow the numbers to reach the 60s…

Monday looks to start with a possible frost and reading in the 30s, but has a strong finish with highs in the 60s and sunny.

Tuesday looks to be very nice with temps spiking into the 70s..

That comes on a strong southwesterly wind flow ahead of another strong storm system. This could bring strong to severe storms in here Tuesday night and Wednesday, with cooler air moving in behind this…

Temps rebound quickly behind that by Friday into next weekend. That’s the beginning of May and the first full week of May is already sending out a signal for some big thunderstorm risks around here.

I leave you with your Saturday rain and storm tracking tools…

Make it a great day and take care.

    I’m really convinced I have a phobia of severe weather and tornadoes. I can’t quit checking weather and forecasts. I’ve been really troubled as of late with this weather pattern that we’re in. It’s causing me a bunch of distress. It’s hard to live life that way. Lol

    I’m thankful for the blog, even if it suggests the forecast is gonna be a bit worrisome. I’m already dreading the next couple of weeks. I’d also love to learn what goes into longer forecasts say 7-14 days out and how accurate they are. I’ve checked the SPC a lot, but their tools are definitely for meteorologists.

    I’ll be glad when all this commotion that is going on in the World and everyone’s life gets back to normal. Also, I will be glad when this battle between Winter and Spring equalizes and we get on to warmer and drier Summer weather. Hang in there everyone it will be okay.

    What a lovely Spring day in the Chicago Metro area… a cold, steady rain, winds blowing from the NE off Lake Michigan, and temps around 45 degrees!

      Mike, if this was earlier in the month, Chicago would have been buried in deep snow with the enhancement off of Lake Michigan plus the upper level low slowly moving to your south. Two systems working together very interesting.
