A very stormy pattern for the holiday

Good Tuesday, everyone. Showers and thunderstorms continue to be the name of the weather game across central and eastern Kentucky. These storms have been on the strong side over the past few days and have put down a ton of rain.

Guess what? They’re going to continue through the holiday weekend.

That is bad news for 4th of July festivities as storms will have a big impact on our outdoor plans. That’s especially true now that the Gulf Of Mexico is getting involved in the pattern:


Tropical moisture is getting sucked northward from the Gulf of Mexico and into the bluegrass state. That flow will really kick into high gear Wednesday into the 4th. Strong storms and local flash flooding may be an issue during this time.

Take a look at the rain numbers coming from the GFS through the weekend:

GFSThat is a lot of juice and we may average 1″-3″ of rain during this time. Locally higher amounts are a certainty and those are the areas that may experience high water problems.

The showers and storms will be more prominent during the afternoon and evening hours and that will be the case today. Let’s track:

Have a terrific Tuesday and take care.
