Good Saturday, everyone. Our weather is finally feeling the part of summer out there as steamy temps push into the region. This will hang tough into Sunday and Monday, but stormy changes are ready to usher in cooler temps.
Let’s start with where we are today and hit the fast forward button. Highs are generally in the mid and upper 80s for most of central and eastern Kentucky. The increase in humidity levels will make it feel steamier than that.
We could also spit out some isolated showers and storms. Here are your radars:
Father’s Day looks equally steamy, but with better coverage of the showers and storms going up. This kicks off a very stormy setup into the first half of next week. That’s when another cold front approaches from the northwest:
A few strong storms and heavy rains are a good bet in this type of a setup. That will also usher in much cooler air for the middle and end of next week. Check out the deep trough pushing that front through and another trough dropping in behind it:
The overall setup continues to skew stormier than normal through the rest of the month. The GFS rainfall anomalies shows what I’m talking about:
That’s a familiar trend, isn’t it?
Happy Saturday and take care.
