Good Tuesday to one and all. We are dealing with a fairly active pattern for the first full week of August. This is happening because a series of cold fronts are on the way to the bluegrass state, bringing cooler air and more storms.
As usual, let’s start with today and roll forward. Highs are deep into the 80s as the threat for showers and storms increases from the northwest. This action is along and ahead of our first front that has an arrival time of early Wednesday.
Any storm we see this afternoon or evening could be strong and put down very heavy rains. Here are your Tuesday tracking tools…
The next front is stronger and arrives on the scene Friday. More showers and storms will accompany this boundary as it pushes through:
Some very nice air comes in behind this boundary for the weekend. That front is likely to stall just to our south and southwest and that may lift back toward the north late Sunday into early next week. That could increase rain chances as the next cold front gets ready to sweep in:
The GFS average temperature departure from this Friday through next Friday has a lot of real estate cooler than normal:
Have a great day and take care.
