Good Tuesday, everyone. We are heading into a fairly stormy setup across central and eastern Kentucky and that kicks off with a local severe threat today. This is ahead of a cold front that swings into the region later in the week, keeping the storm chance going, but knocking temps down.
Today’s storms may contain damaging winds and large hail, especially across the north and west. This is where the highest chance for severe weather is from the Storm Prediction Center:
Here are your Tuesday storm tracking tools:
The strongest storms may contain damaging winds and large hail. In addition to the severe threat, these storms will also put down a lot of rain and put on a pretty good light show.
A few more showers and storms will be noted on Wednesday as the front drops in from the northwest. That boundary then slows down right on top of us for Thursday and Friday, keeping showers and storms around. There’s even the chance some of that sticks around into the coming weekend as temps come way down.
The models are all on board with some good rain totals:
As we head into the final week of August and closer to the Labor Day Weekend, the models are still on board with a significant trough developing across the middle of the country and spreading east. Here’s that trough on the European Model for the second half of next week:
The Ensembles are also on this and keep it goring into Labor Day Weekend…
Have a great day and take care.
