More storms for the weekend

Good Saturday to one and all. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms rumble on across Kentucky this weekend, bringing the threat for additional high water issues. This stormy setup appears locked in through next week, at least.

Today’s storms won’t be constant, but will be putting down enough rain to cause local flash flooding problems. A few of the storms may be strong or even severe in the east. This is the area under a minimal severe risk from the Storm Prediction Center:

Another surge of very warm and humid air is pushing in here on Sunday and may be accompanied by some storm clusters rolling in from the west and northwest. A few of these may be strong or severe:

These storms are in response to another low moving in from the northwest, and that will keep rounds of storms going into Monday. Some of those could again be strong or locally severe.

Next week continues the steamy and stormy pattern in our part of the world. If you’re making plans for Memorial Day weekend, much of what happens with our weather may depend on the tropics.

Several models develop some kind of system near Florida:

That’s nothing more than a model signal for now, but it’s interesting to see for the month of May.

Here are your Saturday tracking toys:

Make it a great day and take care.
