Storms increase this weekend

Good Thursday, everyone. We continue to see temps run a little cooler than normal, but those pesky scattered storms remain. As we head into the weekend, temps come up but rounds of storms may take center stage. This is a stormy look for the closing days of June.

Today is another nice day with temps in the low 80s for many. A mix of sun and clouds will show up and a storm or two back into the mix.

Here are your storm tracking toys:

Friday will find a slightly better chance for a shower or storm as temps turn steamy. We are well into the 80s for the entire region.

The weekend finds a boundary dropping toward the region form the north. This looks to get into town and stall out into early next week. That would fire off rounds of showers and thunderstorms:

Heavy rainfall will be a possibility during this time and that’s something we will have to keep a close eye on.

The setup for the first week of July continues to focus on the hottest temps showing up well to our north, while the south is normal to below normal. Kentucky is likely to fall right into the normal category.

You can see the good agreement on the 7 day temp anomalies from the ENSEMBLES:

GFS

With our region being sandwiched between the heat to the north and relatively cooler air to the south, that could mean ample amounts of rain over the next few weeks.

Recent runs of the operational GFS are showing much above normal rains:

Have a great Thursday and take care.
