Steamy temps and stormy times ahead

Good Saturday, folks. It’s the final weekend of August and we are ramping up the humidity and thunderstorm chances. This is a very familiar pattern to those of us in the bluegrass state and it looks  to carry us through the lead up to our big Labor Day Weekend.

Keep an eye on the northwestern sky today. That’s where scattered showers and storms will be firing and dropping into central and eastern Kentucky:

Scattered storms will continue to develop into Sunday as very steamy air continues to move into the state. Areas of the west can make a run at 90, with low and middle 80s in the east.

Locally heavy rains are possible this weekend and that’s showing up on some of the model rain numbers:

Steamy temps will be standard into early next week, with a scattering of showers and storms continuing. The action will really increase by the middle and end of the week. Tropical moisture is streaming in from the Gulf of Mexico as a trough inches closer from the northwest. The end result could be rounds of heavy rain producing showers and storms through the start of the Labor Day Weekend:

Another system may dive in around Labor Day, with some additional action into the first week of September:

Have a wonderful Saturday and take care.
