Good Tuesday to one and all. We have surge of summer air blowing into the region, and this will send our temps way up. The warm air will be joined by rounds of showers and thunderstorms, ready to take control of our pattern.
Highs Tuesday are generally 75 to 80 for much of Central and Eastern Kentucky. Skies will be partly sunny, making this an absolutely gorgeous day.

Watch the progression of the stormy setup:
The models are then spitting out some significant rainfall numbers across our region:
That would be enough rain to cause additional problems across Kentucky.
Make it a terrific Tuesday and take care.
