Good Tuesday, everyone. Our string of amazing weather days is about to come to an end as showers and storms roll our way. This has been a very soggy month, so this will be a fitting final few days of July.
Temps today will be held in check because of the increase in clouds. Highs will be around 80 for most of central and eastern Kentucky. This is still way below normal for this time of year.
Those clouds will eventually produce showers and thunderstorms rolling from west to east late today. Follow the action on our network of radars:
The heaviest rain will fall tonight into Wednesday as low pressure works across the lower Ohio Valley. Some areas could see 1″-3″ of rain between now and Wednesday night and that will continue to add to our monthly totals. July should finish as one of the top 5 wettest on record in Lexington. Exactly where it ranks on the list will depend on how much rain falls through Tomorrow.
The end of the week will find us between the departing cool shot to the north and the bubble of heat across Texas. That setup should carry us into the weekend and will eventually produce rounds of storms in our part of the world:
The models continue to suggest the cool wins the battle over the first few weeks of August, at least. The next surge of cooler than normal air should move in by the middle of next week.
Make it a great Tuesday and take care.
