A stormy start to July

Good Monday and welcome to July. This is the time of year we normally start talking about hazy, hot and humid weather on a regular basis. That is not the case this year as we have plenty of showers and storms and cooler than normal air for the week ahead. Who wants to be normal, anyway?

June is in the books and goes down as the 10th wettest June on record for the city of Lexington. This comes on the heels of last year featuring the 6th driest June on record. From one extreme to the other… it’s how we roll around here.

Scattered showers and storms will continue today as we get a little deeper moisture thrown into the mix. The Gulf Of Mexico will throw juice our way and this will lead to torrential rain producing storms. Some of these storms may be on the strong side.

The same setup will be with us each and every day this week. We will need to keep an eye on the flash flood potential during this time. That’s not good news for all the parades, fireworks and other festivities for the 4th of July.

Temps will continue to run cooler than normal:

GFS 2

If you’re looking for a prolonged break from this soggy pattern… I can’t find one. The 2 week GFS rainfall forecast is nasty:

Have a great Monday and take care.
