Good Tuesday, everyone. We picked up some much needed rain Monday night, and we have more to come. After a break in the action, rain will quickly zip back into Central and Eastern Kentucky Tuesday night and early Wednesday.
Here’s a breakdown of the day:
- Morning showers will quickly pull away, leaving behind a mix of sun and clouds and highs in the low 60s.
- Cloud will quickly thicken up in the afternoon as winds increase.
- Rain and some thunderstorms will press back in from southwest to northeast this evening through Wednesday.
- Rainfall totals of 1 inch or more will be possible for some areas. The NAM now shows a much broader area picking up on heavy rain:
Winds may also gust to 35 mph at times Tuesday night and early Wednesday.
I have you all set to track the soaking drops:
Much colder air then filters in for the rest of the week. Seasonally cold weather will carry us through Friday, when a rain or snow shower might develop.
From there, things get a little complicated. A big system is going to develop across Texas, but the models are having trouble figuring out what to do with it. The European model develops this into a monster storm system affecting our weekend weather with everything from heavy rain and high winds to wraparound snows:
Other models are nowhere near as aggressive with that system. Some have no storm at all affecting the region.
As always, we shall see. Make it a great day and take care.
