Monday, June 18, 2012: Storms For Some, Steamy For Everyone

Good Monday morning, folks!  I hope you enjoyed Father's Day weekend. 

SOME of us had a few soaking showers on Sunday.  Take a look at the radar estimates of rainfall:

Meanwhile, many others stayed dry, from the south side of Richmond to Berea and west to Stanford.  These hit-or-miss thunderstorms will not be quite as widespread over the next few days, so more areas are likely to stay dry.

This morning, some scattered showers have clipped northeastern Kentucky.

The individual showers are sliding southeast, and central Kentucky is remaining dry this morning.

Later today, a few additional thunderstorms will develop, but again, most of them will stay in eastern parts of Kentucky.  Here is the latest NAM / WRF forecast for rainfall today.  You'll notice that most of central Kentucky will remain dry.

The heat will really build over the next few days, and temperatures will soar to 88° today, 90° tomorrow, 91° on Wednesday and 92° on Thursday.  Here's a look at how much of the nation is dealing with heat.  This map represents Tuesday's high temperatures.

The bottom line:  It'll be one of those weeks when it is important to check on the youngest and oldest, and make sure everyone is staying cool.  The young and old are most susceptible to the heat.  Don't forget those pets, too!
