Good Sunday to one and all. Scattered showers and thunderstorms rolled across the region Yesterday and that trend will continue today. High humidity and much warmer air will join the weather party over the next few days. This will bring a touch of the tropics into the state.
First things first… the scattered storms. I’m tired of talking about them, but mother nature doesn’t care what I think. You know the drill… scattered showers and storms will develop into the heart of the afternoon and evening. Locally heavy downpours will be possible. Yada, yada, yada.
Your worn out tracking tools:
Temps today will hit the low 80s for much of central Kentucky with upper 70s in the east. Much warmer air continues to push into the region to start the new work week. Thermometer readings will head into the upper 80s for Monday and Tuesday and have an outside shot at hitting 90:
Humidity levels will also soar during this time and the phrase “heat index” will likely come into play. Storms will be a bit more isolated during this time.
A greater threat for strong or severe storms will be with us for Wednesday and Thursday. This is one of the few severe weather signals we’ve seen this year and will have to be watched closely.
A cold front will blow through here early Friday and knock our temps way down:
A warm up looks to take place over Memorial Day weekend as the threat for a few storms returns.
Have a great Sunday and take care.
