Eastern Kentucky Weather

Some Got It & Some Didn't

There were a few areas across extreme southern KY that received Tuesday's rains. More could be on the way and spread further to the north over the next few days.

It's much the same story as Monday's post. There is still an area of low pressure sitting & spinning near Louisiana & Arkansas. It has been feeding the clouds to our region and it will likely spin more showers toward Kentucky on Wednesday. As long as this is where it is at... we'll see a chance of rain each day. The latest problem I have with the low is the fact that it's just meandering over the same real estate. Just as soon as it makes a little forward progression it begins slipping backwards.

The Low

The low is cut off from the main flow in the atmosphere. That means that the winds aren't steering the path. With nothing to kick it out of there... we get stuck with the clouds and rain chances. Just to our north we have high pressure that is also puching dry air into Kentucky. This is causing a little bit of a conflict. This is one of the reasons the showers have yet to really penetrate deep into Kentucky.

So a daily chance of scattered showers will stay in my forecast. Some may only see clouds! Temps will bounce around the 80 degree mark on Wednesday.

Late next week we might be in for a treat... well if you like the cool autumn temps! It's still kind of early, but when I see things like I have been seeing it just puts a smile on my face! I'll watch it for a few more days and then I will include the data.... if it holds... soon!
