Good Wednesday and welcome to July. We’re entering into what can be a very hot and dry time across the Bluegrass State. For the third summer in a row, that phrase isn’t being used very much. Rounds of heavy rain and thunderstorms will continue to work across the region as temps stay below normal.
Storms in recent days have caused some problems with local high water, wind and hail. The storms out there this afternoon might also be on the strong side. Highs should again be in the low 80s.
The thunderstorm and heavy rain threat should increase as we hit Thursday and Friday. An area of low pressure will zip across the region and give us a better chance at more widespread action. Some of the models have been spitting out some hefty rain totals during this time.
Similar systems might push across the region this Fourth of July weekend into early next week. The WPC is throwing out a lot of water for our region over the next week:
After a brief jump in temperature, it’s likely back to cool for the middle and end of next week:

Have a great day and take care.
