Good Monday to one and all. The first full week of June is off and running on a very nice note, but things are about to change. This pattern will turn VERY stormy and VERY wet for the second half of the week and into the upcoming weekend.
Let us begin with the beauty that is our Monday. Highs today are generally in the low 70s after starting out in the upper 40s. Skies stay mostly sunny.
Tuesday looks pretty good, but I’m adding the chance for a shower or storm across the western parts of the state by later in the day. This is on the leading edge of a very stormy and wet pattern kicking in for the rest of the week through the upcoming weekend.
Wednesday could be a rather active severe weather day across our region as clusters of strong and severe storms roll through. Here’s the Wednesday Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:
Those storms could bring pose an increased risk for damaging winds as they rumble through here.
Tropical moisture is going to be streaming in from the southwest during this time and may have a direct link to some kind of true tropical system in the western Gulf Of Mexico:
That will be aimed right at Kentucky and surrounding states through the weekend:
I do NOT like this setup as it can produce rounds of flash flooding and general flooding issues across Kentucky and surrounding states. Several inches of rain will likely fall during this time:
Make it a great Monday and take care.
