Good Sunday to one and all. Showers and thunderstorms will become fairly common across the bluegrass state today as a stout cold front works in from the northwest. A few rounds of boomers will be likely and some of these could be on the strong side and deliver torrential rains to some.
The action may come in waves as we get one cluster of storms rolling across the region early today, with another coming by later this afternoon and evening. We will likely need to get a little bit of sunshine between these two if that late day stuff is to maximize its severe weather potential. If it does, damaging winds and hail would be possible.
Today’s storms will have a ton of moisture to work with and that should lead to some hefty rain totals for some areas. This could lead to localized flash flooding and that is something that has my attention. A FLASH FLOOD WATCH is out for much of eastern Kentucky into the evening hours.
Leftover showers and storms will hang around into Monday as slightly cooler and less humid air works in. That should set the stage for a fairly tranquil temp week with the threat for scattered storms returning by mid week. The models are taking on a much cooler look by next weekend. Here’s the European Model:
Have a great Sunday and check back for updates. Take care.
