Barry continues to bring heavy rain

Good Wednesday to one and all. The remnants of Hurricane Barry continue to roll across the region, bringing more heavy rain producing showers and storms. These storms are dumping a lot of heavy rain on top of central and eastern Kentucky. This is leading to another day of possible flash flooding.

In the longer range, we are tracking heat for the weekend followed by a much cooler pattern into next week.

As always, let’s begin with today and hit the fast-forward button. These showers and storms will put down a lot of rain in a short amount of time. That gives us the potential for some high water issues to develop. In addition to the heavy rainfall, a few of the storms may be strong.

Here are your mid-week tracking tools:

A few showers and storms will fire back up on Thursday as low-level tropical moisture remains. Once again, we will need to be on guar for local flash flooding issues.

As the hotter air moves in for Friday, we just can’t shake the thunderstorms. Scattered boomers will be around as temps head toward 90 or so.

A similar setup will be with us this weekend as hot and humid weather continues. A scattered storm or two will be around on Saturday, but the storm action looks to ramp up on Sunday. That’s as a strong cold front dives in from the northwest into Monday. Strong to severe storms will be possible ahead of this front as MUCH cooler air takes control behind it:

There’s another front lurking behind that one later next week:

That’s a lot of below normal air showing up:

Have a great day and take care.
