Showers and storms rumble back in

Good Tuesday to one and all. Coming off record setting rains over the weekend, we are tracking more showers and storms back into the region. A few of the storms this afternoon and evening may even be on the strong side.

The action comes from a potent system working out of the Mississippi Valley into the Ohio Valley. This will spawn rounds of showers and storms sweeping in from west to east. There is also the potential for a few of the storms to be strong.

The best chance for a severe storm or two is across the western half of the state. In addition to small hail and high winds, these storms may also drop an inch or so of rain on a few spots.

The blog trackers are fired up and ready to track whatever is out there:

Lingering showers are likely into Wednesday as a cold front crosses the state. The air behind this front is trending cooler as we get closer. Take a look at the big temp drop going on across Kentucky by Wednesday afternoon:

That looks like a typical fall front, with cooler air settling in behind this into Friday. The European and NAM both keep temps in the 60s for highs into central Kentucky:

Given the trend toward cooler behind this front, it may be a sign the tropics are running out of steam and finally giving up on dictating the overall pattern.

Temps do rebound into the 70s for Friday and Saturday, but a stronger front then shows up by Sunday:

That will have showers and storms and very gusty winds with it as it blows through here. You will also notice the system near Florida is now struggling to develop.

Anyway, check out the temp drop as the front moves in:

Have a great day and take care.
