Storms start the new week

Good Monday, folks. Our new week is underway with scattered showers and thunderstorms working across central and eastern Kentucky. These storms are loaded with moisture and will continue to drop a ton of water as they work through.

Some areas picked up enough water this weekend to cause flash flooding and that is certainly possible again today. A Flash Flood Watch continues into this evening for eastern and southeastern Kentucky:

WarningsToday’s storms will also contain a lot of lightning and that’s another aspect we will need to be aware of. Your daily dose of storm tracking toys:

This week will feature another cold front or two working toward the state and that means additional rounds of showers and storms. This is not a period that will feature wall to wall rain by any means. It is a pattern that will give us some decent boomers roaming in from the northwest.

The overall flow continues to feature a big dip in the jet stream. That pushes the heat back to the desert southwest and allows some cooler air from Canada to move into the eastern part of the country. The GFS Ensembles show cooler than normal temps for the final 7 days of July:

GFS 2

The cooler than normal air may hang around into the first part of July.

Make it a magnificent Monday and take care.
