Heavy rain and storms return

Good Monday, folks. The past week has been exceptionally wet across the region, with several areas getting in on high water issues. Heavy rain producing thunderstorms are back in the bluegrass state, giving us another threat for flash flooding.

Rounds of showers and storms develop and work from west to east across the state today. With a saturated ground, it won’t take much to cause creeks and streams to leave their banks.

Some of the storms may even be strong or locally severe. Damaging wind gusts will be possible through tonight. Here’s the latest Severe Weather Outlook map from the Storm Prediction Center:

The showers and storms roll into Tuesday as a powerful low pressure rolls into the Great Lakes. That drags a fall cold front through the bluegrass state, with a taste of September temps coming in behind it:

A leftover shower is possible on Wednesday, but the big news will be the temps. Highs may not get out of the low and middle 70s.

Thursday should see highs back in the 70s with lows by Thursday and Friday mornings drop deep into the 50s and could make a run at 50 in the cooler valleys:

The weekend will find a warmer setup trying to fight back in from the west, but showers and storms may form ahead of this and dive into the state from the northwest:
