Good Tuesday everyone and thanks for making us your online stop for Kentucky weather. Monday was exactly what the temperature doctor ordered as thermometers struggled to get past 80 degrees in many areas. The 80s will be a common theme over the next week and showers and thunderstorms will try to tag along.
It’s a much wetter weather pattern taking shape over the next few weeks and it’s one that can put down a lot of rain if everything works out. The cold front that blew through here Sunday has stalled out across Tennessee. This will keep the highest threat for showers and storms across southern parts of the state today and tomorrow. An isolated storm or two may work a little farther to the north. Highs today will generally run in the mid and upper 80s with a 90 possible.
Our stalled boundary will slowly lift northward by Thursday and Friday and this will bring the rains to most of the state. The Gulf of Mexico is wide open for business and should aid our moisture supply. Take a look at the GFS Ensembles Rain Forecast through Saturday afternoon:
That wet pattern is then forecast to hang around through much of next week. Let’s wait to see how the end of the week plays out before getting too excited. But, I do like the trend.
Have a great Tuesday and take care.
