A Warm and Stormy Setup Ahead

Good Thursday, folks. We continue to track the high water potential across areas of eastern Kentucky today, but the focus going forward is on warm and stormy. This is a pattern that kicks into high gear for the upcoming Memorial Day Weekend and lasts into next week. As this is happening, cooler changes look to be taking shape to end the month and begin June.

Let’s begin with the flood potential out there today. The threat for flash flooding is with us across eastern Kentucky, where an inch or two of rain is possible through today…

Here are the current warnings out for the region…

Your radars are here to track today’s action…

The upper low begins to finally pull away on Friday as warm and humid air presses in from the west. This brings temps in the 80s for us through Memorial Day, but this is going to bring rounds of storms back in here…

Some of those storms may be strong through early next week and could drop enough rain to cause local flash flood issues.

The warm and stormy pattern takes us through the end of next week, but there are indications of a big time cold front arriving to end May. Look at the temp anomalies from the EURO…

That could introduce a cooler than normal start to June and the GFS is also on board. It’s showing well below normal numbers for the first 5 days of the month…

2004, anyone?

Make it  a great day and take care.

    All & all, not a bad forecast, considering what time of the year it is.

    more rain and cold? no, ill never believe it 🙁 I did catch a glimpse of a bright object in the sky this morning. it lit up my kitchen for a brief few seconds. it was beautiful. 2020 is taking sunshine, my happiness and soaking it in cold rain with a dash of pandemic while laughing at my teary eyed misery.

    Anybody else getting warnings about this website, that it’s dangerous? I had been getting the warning on my phone for awhile, but today it started showing up on my computer. Frustrating.

    It seems more like June of 2003 to me. That month had 3 days out of the first 5 with highs in the 60’s and lows in the 40’s. That would be just fine.
