Good Wednesday to one and all. We have waves of showers and thunderstorms ready to rumble across central and eastern Kentucky over the next several days. As the storms continue to ramp up, the temperatures are going to be dropping.
Temps today are still on the steamy side with a few showers and storms going up. These storms may be more prominent by the evening and a few could be strong or severe. Just like yesterday, these storms will also put down torrential rains.
Here are your mid-week tracking tools:
A cold front slowly drops into the region and slows down for Thursday and Friday and becomes stationary:
Waves of showers and thunderstorms will be on the move from west to east during this time. A few strong storms will be possible, but the heavy rain threat may take control. While I don’t see either day as being a total washout, the rain chances are pretty high. This could impact high school football action, especially across the southern half of the state Friday evening.
That front may try to linger into the weekend and that would keep the chance for a few showers and storms going. The temperature trend is way down from later Thursday through the weekend. If the front can push a little farther south, it may feel awfully comfy.
Another deep trough digs into the country by the middle and end of next week. Temps will rebound around here ahead of this into the first half of the week, but that cooler air should work in here as we get closer to the Labor Day Weekend.
Given the temperature fights going on, the amount of rain that falls around here should average above normal over the next 2 weeks…
