Tracking heavy rain

Good Tuesday to one and all. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms are moving across the region Tuesday with locally heavy rains. This action even has a bit of a tropical connection to it.

Some areas might see 1 to 2 inches of rain through Tuesday night, and it could cause some local high-water problems. That’s hard to believe considering how dry we were before this past weekend, but it’s one extreme or the other around here.

Showers will carry us into Wednesday, with highs in the upper 60s and the potential for some late-day clearing.

Thursday’s weather looks good, with lows in the 40s and highs in the 60s.

That brings us to the weekend and the opening of the fall meet at Keeneland. Things are really taking on a chilly look. But what about the rain? That depends on which model we look at.

The European Model develops a big storm to our east and throws rain and wind all the way into Kentucky:

Euro 2That would be very, very ugly.

The GFS shows most of this system staying well to our east:

GFSEither way, it’s going to be very, very chilly!

Have a great day and take care.
