Storms increase this week

Good Monday to one and all. Our sizzling temps area about to give way to a fairly stormy setup across much of the region. Rounds of showers and storms increase as the week wears on, as we hang on to above normal temps.

Highs today are generally in the upper 80s to low 90s with a mix of sun and clouds. A few record highs may be broken.

Some afternoon and evening storms will try to go up, especially across the northern half of the state. Whatever is out there will show up on your radars:

The storm threat will increase starting Tuesday and will take us through the rest of the week. A front stalls across the Ohio Valley, with moisture streaming in from the Gulf of Mexico. That’s where a tropical system may be developing:

 

Can that become a classified system? That’s certainly a possibility. From there, the European takes the low into eastern Kentucky later this week:

Some heavy rains are likely in that type a setup.

It’s a setup that should continue through next week, too. The rainfall forecast through then shows a very active pattern, with the tropical connection:

That overall precipitation pattern matches up well with the long range European that goes toward the end of June. Check out the expansive area of above normal rains:

Have a magnificent Monday and take care.
