Good Sunday and welcome to the last day of June. We are putting the wraps on a soggy month in the bluegrass state and this soggy pattern shows no signs of letting up. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms will continue to dominate the forecast as we head into the first few weeks of July.
An upper level low continues to spin across the Ohio Valley. This system has little pieces of energy diving in from the northwest. Each of these will act to enhance our shower and thunderstorm threat. Any storm that pops today may be strong and contain locally heavy downpours. This may continue to cause problems up at the Kentucky Speedway.
Temps will hang around in the high 70s.
Deeper moisture begins to push into the region from the south as we head into Monday. This will give us a slightly better chance at some stronger storms. That same flow looks to stay with us each and every day during the upcoming week.
Our 4th of July holiday plans will likely be impacted by the rounds of showers and thunderstorms coming from this flow:
Rainfall amounts for the week ahead should average 1″-2″ with locally higher amounts. At some point, high water issues may develop in a few spots. While this is a stormy pattern… it’s also a mild one with no heat in sight. Afternoon highs will be in the upper 70s to low 80s with overnight lows around 60.
Have a great Sunday and take care.
