Tracking a strong cold front toward Kentucky

Good Tuesday, everyone. Humidity levels have spiked up and that’s to be expected with all the water in the ground. This high humidity level will lead to scattered storms going up this afternoon as we await the arrival of a cold front for Wednesday. That front will lead to the possibility of some big storms.

Temperatures today will head back into the 80s with the oppressive humidity levels continuing. The scattered storms will flare up in the afternoon and evening hours… especially across the northern half of the state.

You can see those on regional radar:

A cold front dives in here on Wednesday and that leads to a better chance for showers and booming thunderstorms. Some of these may be strong or severe by the end of the day. High winds and torrential rainfall will be the primary threats from the storms.

Showers and storms will continue into Thursday as the slow moving front works through the area. This will usher in much cooler and drier air for the end of the week. Take a look the high temps that follow:


That will certainly look and feel pretty good!

Does that mean we are out of the wet pattern we’ve been in for the past few months? The GFS 2 Week Rain Forecast says no:

GFS Rain

Have a great Tuesday and take care.
