A small break in the rainy weather

Good Sunday, everyone. Showers and thunderstorms will take a bit of a break across our region today. While the storms won’t totally go away, today’s radar should be much cleaner than the past several days. The break is short lived and we will see the big boomers returning by later Monday.

Torrential rains Saturday afternoon and evening produced flooding problems in several areas. Richmond was one of those spots that reported several high water. Take a look at this picture from my @kentuckyweather twitter feed:

The stuff out there today will be much more isolated across the area. The best chance of seeing storms today will be across southern and southeastern Kentucky. You can follow the boomers on regional radar:

Temps today will be in the low and mid 80s for highs.

The threat for showers and storms will increase by Monday afternoon from southwest to northeast. This will put us back into a pattern that can deliver additional heavy rains through Tuesday:

NAM 1

Cooler air will finally filter in here by the middle and end of the week. That should push the rains well to our south for a few days. The GFS Ensembles show just how far below normal temps may turn out for Thursday:

GFS 3

That takes us into the middle of the month and I still can’t find anything hot coming our way over the next few weeks.

Make it a sensational Sunday and take care.
