Temps rise before storms increase

Good Monday, everyone. We’ve made it to the first full week of August, and that can only mean one thing. It’s back to school for many of the kiddos. Several districts are beginning the new school year this week, and the temps don’t look too bad.

Highs Monday will range from the low to mid-80s across Central and Eastern Kentucky. A small threat of a shower or thunderstorm is with us, but most areas will stay dry.

Current temperatures

Tuesday looks to feature similar conditions, with highs in the mid- and upper 80s and some isolated showers and storms.

On Wednesday and Thursday, we will start to see some changes. Highs will stay in the mid- and upper 80s, but the humidity levels will come way up, and that aids in storm development.

Most of that will be rather scattered, with the potential for more widespread action arriving Friday. That’s when the models point to an area of low pressure working right on top of Kentucky:


That’s a setup you don’t normally see in the summertime, but this hasn’t been a normal summer.

Rounds of showers and storms could put down some decent rain totals through the weekend:

Euro 2Temps are likely to fall back into the below normal range during this time, and that carries us into next week.

Have a great Monday and take care.
