Good Monday, everyone. We’re still dealing with the slow-moving system that has drenched the Bluegrass State over the past few days. Rain totals of 1 to 3 inches have been common since Saturday, and we have additional showers out there today.
The pattern for the second half of the week will turn more toward a typical May look and feel. That means an increase in temps, humidity and thunderstorms.
Let’s start with the short term forecast:
Scattered showers will continue today, with gusty winds and highs in the mid- and upper 50s. Any breaks in the cloud cover would allow highs to hit the low 60s.
Highs on Tuesday will climb into the mid and upper 60s, with the a smaller threat of a shower or thunderstorm.
Warmer and more humid air pushes into the state on Wednesday, and that will promote the development of scattered thunderstorms for the end of the week into the weekend.
That could come to a booming end by Sunday as another powerful cold front works our way. Check out the push of cold air showing up on the GFS:
It’s been that kind of spring!
Make it a great Monday and take care.
