Storms Start A Very Wet Pattern

Good Friday to one and all. A strong cold front is working toward the state today and will bring an increase in showers and storms by evening. Some of these storms may be on the strong side, with wet weather and cooler temps following for the rest of the weekend.

All of this will kick off a very wet period through the middle of next week, with some serious fall temps on the way to close out September and open October. I will get to all that a bit.

Let’s begin with today’s increase in storms. Scattered action develops this morning into the afternoon before increasing this evening. That’s when a line of showers and storms drops in and brings a low-end severe threat. Here’s the latest Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

That front then slows down right on top of the region into the weekend, bringing more rounds of rain and much cooler air into the state through Monday…

Heavy rain producing showers and storms continue Tuesday and Wednesday as another powerful front drops in from the northwest…

You will also notice something spinning off the southeast seaboard. I talked about that a few days back.

Two more systems dive into our region late next week into the following weekend. Each will bring more rain, with cold air coming in behind the two…

Temps go MUCH colder than normal during this time, with the potential for  an early season frost.

Before we worry about that, I’m becoming more worried about more high water issues. All of these systems passing through here over the next week will put down a ton of rain. Look at the numbers from the European Model…

The GFS isn’t too far behind…

Nothing good can come from those totals… Which really don’t take thunderstorms into consideration.

I have you all set to do some storm tracking…

Make it a great day and take care.

    It is strange to even consider such high rainfall totals for the last week of September; however, our humidity resembles July and all of that cold coupled with the amplified trough pushing the heat out should bring a ton rain!

    I agree with the impending cold front stalling out. But will it be through central Kentucky or along the Ohio River ? It would be better if the cold front stalled out along the Gulf of Mexico or better Florida. Then we would see some real Autumn weather. This occurred in the Autumn of 1976 when we had the coldest November on record. We have finish a summer of high humidity, frequent rains, but the high temperatures were lower in some areas of the state. The night temperatures however were higher than normal. On the subject of climate change I was never a believer until we had that awful tropical season of 2017 and again just last weekend with Hurricane Florence. These extremes I believe are examples of climate change events. Climate change doesn’t mean that the earth is getting hotter or colder it’s the extreme weather events that have been going on since the last Ice Age. This makes meteorology extremely interesting study and I feel in the future decades ahead the weather will be more extreme than now with record heat waves, extreme arctic outbreaks, droughts, tornadoes, and record blizzards and snow and ice storms and strong hurricanes both in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
