scattered storms this week

by

Basically we’ll be on the edge of the heat again and with the leftover’s Sunday’s front, a storm trigger across southern ky this week, afternoon  evening hit and miss storms will be possible again with isolated severe weather and locally hvy rains. Storm coverage Monday should range from 30% in the north to 50% in the south increasing to about 50% Tuesday and Wednesday across the region. The storm coverage will also be aided from Bonnie’s leftovers. A new front should keep storm chances going into Thursday. By the weekend we may be in active pattern for mcs’s as there will be more in the way of disturbances rotating around the ridge expected to be positioned in the southern plains this week. I’m expecting highs in the mid 80’s to low 90’s depending on storms with lows in the upper 60’s and low 7o’s through Thursday.
