Rainy Start to the Week!

We caught a break from the rain today as the last bits of isolated showers in the region pushed eastward this morning. The high today is 83° with overcast conditions for most of the day. Scattered showers are likely to develop in the late afternoon in south central KY. The low tonight is right at a comfortable 70° with partly cloudy conditions.

Our next chance of rain comes on Tuesday as a cold front makes its way into the region. The high will be a bit warmer at 86°, and the low will be about 72°. Scattered showers with a few strong winds are expected to begin in the evening hours as a slow moving low pressure system in the upper levels triggers waves of energy towards the Tennessee Valley. The NAM shows areas with 2-4″ of precipitable water from tomorrow night into Thursday. This setup puts most of Kentucky at a marginal risk of severe weather according to the severe thunderstorm outlook. Though, the biggest concern would be for potential localized flooding.

NAM’s predicted precipitable water values for Tuesday. Values increase throughout the region into Thursday night and early Friday morning.
