Good Monday, everyone. We have a bona fide tropical air mass in place across the Bluegrass State. High humidity and very warm temps will combine to give us a serious case of the muggies for the next few days. All of this will eventually lead to more rounds of thunderstorms.
Highs today will hit the mid- and upper 80s, with 90 possible in some places. Humidity levels will be sky-high, and that will increase the sweat factor if you have to work outdoors. Isolated storms might try to crank up.
The weather Tuesday will be similar to what we have today. Highs will be in the mid- and upper 80s with high humidity.
The system in the Plains states continues to bring that region a major outbreak of severe weather. We will need to watch the eastward progression of that threat, because some of the models suggest that it could be close to us by Tuesday evening. The NAM simulated radar tries to bring a healthy line of storms in here tomorrow evening:
The threat for strong or severe storms will be with us from late Tuesday through Thursday. It’s been a very quiet severe weather season, so we are long overdue.
Cooler air moves in to start the Memorial Day weekend, with highs in the upper 60s to low 70s for Friday. The threat of storms might return as early as Sunday and Monday, as the cold and warmth do battle across our part of the world:
Enjoy your Monday and take care.
