A Stormy Setup Ahead

Good Thursday, gang. As we roll into the closing days of June, we find a fairly stormy setup taking shape for our region. This will kick in over the weekend and is likely to roll through the remaining days of the month and into early July. That’s when we find ourselves in a temperature world flipped upside down.

As always, we begin with what’s going on out there today. Highs range from the upper 70s and low 80s central and east with 80-85 for the west. There’s still the chance for a couple of scattered showers and storms going up.

Here are the radars to keep you company for the day…

Friday will find a slightly better chance for a shower or storm as temps turn steamy. We are well into the 80s for the entire region.

The weekend finds a boundary dropping toward the region form the north. This looks to get into town and stall out into early next week. That would fire off rounds of showers and thunderstorms…

Heavy rainfall will be a possibility during this time and that’s something we will have to keep a close eye on.

The setup for the first week of July continues to focus on the hottest temps showing up well to our north, while the south is normal to below normal. Kentucky is likely to fall right into the normal category.

You can see the good agreement on the 7 day temp anomalies from the ENSEMBLES…

GFS

With our region being sandwiched between the heat to the north and relatively cooler air to the south, that could mean ample amounts of rain over the next few weeks.

Recent runs of the operational GFS are showing much above normal rains…

Have a great Thursday and take care.

    Thanks Chris, Interesting to study why the weather models are predicting a “heat wave” around the Great Lakes into southern Canada and cooler than normal temperatures well to our south. Normal temperatures predicted for the state of Kentucky, but with the scattered showers around the dew points will likely increase into the uncomfortable levels. However, so far it’s been a decent growing season for the Farmers here locally.
