Same Old Story

It has been a dreary summer for the past few weeks across eastern and southeastern Kentucky. I mean, has anyone been able to get in the pool? This is one of the coolest summers I can remember and I do not like it one bit. Today and tomorrow and the following several days will feature more of the same crappy summer forecast.

Today: 60% chance of showers and thunderstorms. The best chance comes after 2PM. Some storms could be slow movers and cause flash flooding. High near 82 degrees.

Tonight: 40% chance of lingering thunderstorms. Low near 65.

Tomorrow: More slow moving showers and thunderstorms. Expect heavy rainfall. High near 82 degrees.

The showers and storms today will be very scattered in nature but any one spot could lie under the gun for some training thunderstorms to drop a ton of rain in a short period of time and cause flash flooding. Keep an eye on the radar today:

Most of the rain will be focused on SE KY today.  A lot of that area was drenched in heavy rainfall yesterday. So for that reason, I have drawn a map that shows where I think there is an increased risk of flash flooding today.




A cold front will pass through during the beginning and middle of the work week to push this moisture out of the area. This cold front will bring in some chilly air. Check out lows on Wednesday night.



I’ll have more on the cold front and what it means for the rest of the forecast tomorrow. For now, check out your 7 day forecast:
