Good Tuesday everyone and thanks for dropping by the blog. Showers and storms have been in short supply across Kentucky over the past several months. Things are beyond dry and much of the state is officially in a mild to severe drought. The threat for much needed showers and storms is on the increase just in time for our Independence Day celebrations.
We now have very good moisture supply pushing into the state today. Combine that with a weak frontal boundary just to our north and east and that’s usually a good combo for scattered showers and thunderstorms.
This setup is likely to carry us into the 4th of July on Wednesday. You can see how the action increases on the GFS:
Temps are going to continue to run on the hot side with 90s outside of any boomer action. The 90s will likely carry us through much of the week and into the start of the upcoming weekend. The pattern does look cooler for much of next week as the heat heads back to the west.
Let’s get busy tracking today’s weather:
Have a fantastic Tuesday and take care.
