scattered storms again

by

1. like yesturday we’re seeing scattered afternoon storms which are slowing moving and strong ahead of a frontal boundry. these storms will put down a ton of rain. yesturday areas just east of 1-75 saw 3-10 inches of rain according to radar leading to high water issues.  today areas such as frankfort and campbelsville are seeing these slow moving storms with another 1-3 inches in these spots in a short time. again these scattered storms are leading to flash flood warnings!  I expect these storms move slowly around the region through sunset temps will hold in the 80’s outside of storms. here in versailles the cell that just passed through is intensfying with 50 mph gusts as it moves south. Just called it in to NWS!

last nights rains accoring to nws spotter network

all of these severe weather events have led to excessive rains in east ky (nws)

2. saturday again will see a piece of the heat ridge move east thanks to sw flow allowing highs to reach 90 and with dewpoints in the 60’s, 100 heat index values are possibile. no rain is expected

3.  another front pushes the heat ridge away and brings a likelyhood for storms knocking highs back into the 80’s. the flow will turn around to the nw.

4. long range update later tonight!
