Storms increase for the week ahead

Good Sunday to one and all. We are rolling right on through the first weekend of August, with some steamy temps and scattered storms. Those storms are set to increase for the week ahead.

Temps out there today are back into the midddle and upper 80s with humidity levels adding a bit to the uncomfortably level. Scattered showers and storms will develop, especially in the afternoon and evening hours:

The showers and storms will increase late Monday as a storm system drops in from the northwest. This could bring strong storms our way on Tuesday.

Additional showers and storms likely linger into Wednesday, with another system possibly coming at us later in the week toward the weekend. All this should help keep temps running a little cooler than normal.

I promised you guys a little winter talk, so lets do this. I’ve already shared some early thoughts over the past month or two… I like the way the El Niño is forecast to setup. The placement in the central Nino region and the weak look to it, both argue for a winter trough across our region. That would be good news to cold and snow lovers.

The new seasonal run of the Canadian Model looks like the last run and is locked in on the trough idea:

December

January

February

That’s a good look for winter weather lovers across Kentucky and surrounding states. Of course, it’s still very, very early in the winter forecasting game.

Have a great Sunday and take care.
