More storms rumble through the area

Good Sunday to one and all. It’s another day of some sun doing battle with rounds of showers and thunderstorms. This is an all too familiar setup for those of us in the bluegrass state and it’s one that looks to be the trend of the summer.

Monday looks to feature more showers and storms, with a similar severe weather potential:

Heavy rains will continue to bring a flash flood threat to the region. Obviously, it’s not raining all the time, but you know the drill by now.

Don’t worry, as soon as it doesn’t rain for a few days, the garbage drought monitor will tell you that we are abnormally dry and beginning a drought. 🙂

The temperature trend for June to date as been cooler than normal across Kentucky and across much of the country:

The numbers next week are closer to where we should be to wrap up June, but there has been a growing signal for another cooler than normal shot around the 4th of July. Several of the Ensembles have been hinting at this and now the operational models are going that way. This is one heck of a trough on the GFS:
