Good Tuesday everyone. Much needed rains moved into the bluegrass state Monday bringing a nice little drink of water. The showers will move out later today and this will set the stage for the return of pleasant temps. That has been the theme of June, so far.
The rains of Monday were beneficial for some and not so much for others. A swath of a half to one inch of rain set up across much of central Kentucky with lesser amounts in the east. Here’s a look at some rain totals from Kentucky Mesonet:
Western sections of the state did very well with a lot of folks seeing inch and a half totals. They had to endure some severe weather to get those type of rains. That’s the trade you have to make during a severe drought.
Leftover showers and a scattered thunderstorm will be possible across central and eastern Kentucky today. The higher chances will be in the east and will come early today. Highs should range from 80-85 for most areas. Here’s the regional radar:
Today’s action is ahead of a cold front that will bring in another round of nice weather. Highs for Wednesday will likely stay in the 70s:
Normal to slightly below normal temps should hang tough through the rest of the week. We will warm it up into the middle 80s by the weekend. That may come with an isolated storm or two.
Another cold front will bring our next shot at widespread rains early next week.
Have a great Tuesday and take care.
