Rounds of storms ahead

Good Tuesday, folks. We continue to track a pretty active weather pattern for Central and Eastern Kentucky. It’s a setup throwing scattered storms at us Tuesday, but it also can throw many more storms our way later this week into the weekend.

Highs Tuesday will top out in the 70s, with clouds and the sun doing a little dance. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will occur during this time, with the greatest concentration across the south and southeast. Heavy rains there could cause a few issues.

Wednesday’s weather looks similar, with a storm or two and highs in the 70s. Thursday’s highs could hit the low 80s ahead of a cold front sliding in from the northwest. This could touch off a line of showers and strong storms during the evening and overnight:

Friday’s temps will be much lower as slightly drier air moves in. That dry air isn’t going to carry us through the weekend, though. That’s because of a slow-moving storm system rolling in from the southwest. This system looks to bring a lot of moisture our way:

Thunderstorms and heavy rains are a good possibility for the weekend. Some of the models suggest more than 2 inches of rain for areas of Kentucky.

Lower temps will be noted as this system rolls through.

Have a terrific Tuesday and take care.
