Adam Burniston’s Forecast | Watching today’s severe threat
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - With Summer’s heat and humidity back in full swing, we’ll also be watching for strong to severe thunderstorms for your Sunday.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue here through the evening hours. A severe threat will also remain with us throughout this evening but should start to dwindle as we head into tonight. Even if you don’t see a severe warning, these storms are still putting down some heavy rainfall, which could lead to some localized flooding. Throughout this evening temperatures will fall into the 70s and 60s but remain mild overnight.
By Monday, storm chances will remain in the forecast as another system moves in. Some dry times will be with us in the morning before a bit more widespread thunderstorm chances move back in throughout the afternoon hours. Some storms could remain on the stronger side as well, but as of now, the main severe risk stays further off to our west. Morning temperatures on Monday will start in the mid to upper 60s, and then afternoon highs will be back into the mid to upper 80s.
A front will finally move through our area by Tuesday, which does continue the widespread rain chances, but also brings us some cooler air behind it. Highs on Tuesday will be around 80, and then by the middle parts of the week, highs could only top out in the mid to upper 80s. Some dry time will move back into the forecast for the middle parts of the workweek with an isolated threat for rain later on into the week.
