Good Wednesday, everyone. It’s the first day of July and the 7th month of the year is off and running with more rounds of showers and storms. This is falling on ground that is waterlogged in many areas, leading to another flash flood risk today.

As we get into the all important 4th of July holiday weekend, temps and humidity levels take off, but the chance for a storm may return. I’ll get into that in a bit.

Let’s start with today. It’s very similar to the weather from the past few days. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms will show up across the state and these will drop a lot of water in a short amount of time. That may easily cause additional flash flood issues to develop. This looks fairly localized. Outside of the action, temps are steamy and deep into the 80s.

Thursday finds mainly dry weather FINALLY pushing into the bluegrass state. This kicks off a very toasty setup through the 4th of July weekend. Highs this weekend range from the middle 80s to low 90s with humidity making it feel hotter than that.

There’s still the threat for a storm or two going up and the GFS is picking up on this into early next week…

Now that we are into the month of July, we can start looking at toward the late summer and fall pattern to see how things are shaping up. That’s what we will be doing in the coming days and weeks. We are also getting closer to the brand new Kentucky Weather Center, too!

As always, I leave you with your tracking toys for the day…
