Storm chances are on the rise through mid-week as the remnants of Barry turn towards the Ohio Valley. Barry will dump a half a foot or more rain across the Lower Mississippi Valley through Monday. The former hurricane will then take a right turn at the Ohio River. The wind will pick up and scattered thunderstorms will start filing into the Bluegrass Tuesday afternoon. The first day of the Barbasol Championship doesn't look promising with a better chance for heavy rain and storms on Wednesday as the center of Barry moves directly over the Commonwealth. One to three inches of rain will be possible through Thursday. There are no glaring flooding concerns at this time. The remnants of Barry will gain speed as it moves through the region.
We will flip the script when it comes to the forecast for the Barbasol Championship. Last year rounds of heavy rain and storms were around for the final days of the tournament. This year we'll get the storm chances out of the way early on. That should give the greens time the firm back up. We'll be trading the storm chances for some of the hottest temperatures of the summer. Highs next weekend are expected to surge into the mid 90s.
