From storms to possible record lows

Good Monday to one and all. A major pattern change is underway, delivering showers and thunderstorms to the region. They will bring some much-needed rain to many areas and will unleash a huge outbreak of cool weather.

Monday’s showers and storms might be a little on the strong side. Localized severe weather is possible, especially in southern Kentucky. Winds will gust as the storms blow through.

These boomers are being pushed by a big dip in the jet stream. This is a setup you normally see in the dead of winter instead of the middle of July:

That will allow for the possibility of record lows in coming days. The NAM is forecasting highs in the low to middle 70s for Tuesday:

NAMLows by Wednesday morning might drop into the upper 40s to low 50s across much of the region:

GFS 2Records might very well be broken Wednesday and Thursday. Both days should feature some sunshine, with highs staying in the 70s.

Our next chance of rain arrives Friday and Saturday and is looking more impressive by the day.

Speaking of rain, let’s track Monday’s showers and possible strong storms:
