Cooler winds follow the storms

Good Tuesday, everyone. A potent cold front is working through Kentucky today and it’s bringing more in the way of showers and storms. The air sweeping in behind this looks much better for the rest of the week, but we can’t shake the storm threat.

The most widespread showers and storms are early today with more scattered action in the afternoon. Any storm that’s out there can drop a lot of rain in a short amount of time. Here are your tracking tools:

Highs today range from the mid 70s to low 80s as winds change direction during the afternoon and evening. That wind brings in the below normal temps and lower humidity levels for Wednesday and Thursday. Highs are mainly in the 70s during this time.

Temps recover to normal summer levels this weekend as more in the way of showers and storms develop. This action looks common through the rest of the month into early July. The GFS Ensembles continue to show above normal rain over the next 2 weeks:

That’s a really hot pattern for the Lakes into the northeast and areas of Canada. It’s one that may also portend a busy hurricane season.

Have a terrific Tuesday and take care.
