Storms Bring Slightly Cooler Air

An incoming front adds some relief
Posted at 2:23 PM, Jul 29, 2019

An incoming cold front is already spotted on the MaxTrack and is headed for us. As of now, things are calm and quiet here in Central and Eastern Kentucky. Hot and humid conditions persist with temperatures up near 90 degrees and a dew point in the mid-60s. It’s also a little breezy out ahead of the front with a southwesterly wind reaching ~15 mph sustained.

The incoming front will provide us with a chance for rain and storms starting late tonight. The incoming wave of storms will mostly break apart as it crosses into our forecast area. Still, expect a few scattered rounds of heavy rain and lightning if you are in the Bluegrass. The energy, along with the heating of the day will spark new showers and storms tomorrow, and the coverage will be more expansive. Scattered storms will continue through Tuesday afternoon and evening before coming to an end. Afterwards, temperatures drop into the low 80s for afternoon highs. Morning lows will stay in the low to mid-60s range. We take a break from storms, other than a few afternoon pop-ups, for the rest of the work week.
