Good Thursday to one and all. We are entering the period I’ve been highlighting as a wet one that should deliver some drought denting rains across much of the bluegrass state. It’s not all going to come at once and will be spread out over the next several days.
The stalled front across Tennessee is slowly working back to the north today and Friday and is getting a push from a wave of low pressure. This disturbance will lift into the state late tonight and Friday and should enhance the showers and storms.
Scattered storms get going early today with the greatest concentration across southern Kentucky. This action becomes a bit more widespread and lifts northward by this afternoon and evening. This may really kick into high gear late tonight and Friday and some local high water issues may pop up.
Take a look at the 5 day rainfall forecast from the HPC:
That would go a long, long way to help out the drought across the state.
Scattered storms will try to hang tough all the way through next week. This is a vastly different pattern than the one we’ve been in over the past few months.
Let’s track today’s rain:
I will have updates as needed. Have a great Thursday and take care.
