Scattered storms return

Good Tuesday, folks. Much warmer air continues to push into Central and Eastern Kentucky, bringing an increase in scattered storms. These storms will hang around for much of the week, with the potential for a few strong boomers.

Tuesday’s action is along and north of a warm front draped across our region. The most likely chance of┬ástorms will be across the eastern half of the state, with some heavy rainfall a good bet.

Outside of the storms, highs could reach the upper 70s to low 80s.

Scattered showers and storms will be around for Wednesday and Thursday as temps make a run at 80 degrees. Higher humidity levels will also come along for the ride, leading to the chance for a few strong storms.

A general shower pattern may then take shape by Friday, as low pressure works across the Ohio Valley. Rain totals over the next 5 days could average 1″-2″ for many parts of the state:

Highs on Friday look a little cooler with readings from 60-65 in most areas. Winds should be on the gusty side, too.

Mother’s Day Weekend is looking better with an increase in sunshine and temps. Highs could be around 75 for the big day.

This may take us into a much warmer setup for next week.

Have a great Tuesday and take care.
