Rounds of storms continue

Good Wednesday, folks. We have a very tropical feeling air mass in place across the bluegrass state. This steamy air will continue to lead to rounds of booming showers and thunderstorms over the next few days.

This is a pattern that is going to be tough to break as we head into early June.

The storms out there today will feature a ton of lightning and torrential rainfall. The heavy rain may end up causing some localized high water issues for some areas. Isolated severe thunderstorms will also be possible with hail and high winds the primary players.

Your daily dose of tracking toys:

Rainfall since midnight

Current temperatures

Winds

The same forecast will play out for Thursday as additional storms come calling. We may catch a small break in the action from late Friday into Saturday as the muggy air pushes just to our southwest:

GFS 3 That could mean Saturday is mainly dry with lower humidity levels. Don’t get too comfortable with that… warm and muggy air quickly moves back in by Sunday and Monday:

GFS 5

Showers and thunderstorms will return during this time and that may set the stage for a stormy first week of June. I doubt we will have a shortage of rainfall this summer!

Have a great day and take care.
