Father’s Day Storms

  • 1:10 AM 06/18/2017  By Darius Mack

Well if you’re like me, you’ve been taking advantage of this amazing weather for the past couple of days. Despite the heat and humidity today, it was a good evening to hang around and “chill” outside for a bit. However, I’m talking big changes coming later on your Father’s Day Sunday. You might not be able to play those whole 18 holes tomorrow however you may get a chance at putting a few holes if you’re out a little earlier in the day.  A cold front is expected to move from the northwest into the southeast, and will likely bring some high winds and heavy rain with it. The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Ok has put out a SLIGHT risk of severe weather for all of the Bluegrass state.

SPC outlook Sunday

 

The timing is mainly in the afternoon, can’t really rule out a stray shower or storm chance earlier in the morning as dew points will already be in the upper 60s and lower 70s. The GREATEST chance will come after about 2PM Sunday afternoon. That’s when you should anticipate more of a widespread weather event. According to NAM, the first round will move in around 2-4pm, and another round possibly late Sunday night and into early Monday morning.

Be sure to stay vigilant of any changing weather conditions, overall, I’m not anticipating a total severe weather outbreak, just stay vigilant as we could see several severe warned storms across the state.

Updated Stab at Snow Totals

3:40p 02/14

Happy Valentines Day! Snow is working its way through the area, and there’s already reports of areas getting in with a few inches of snow soo far, especially in southern Kentucky, moderate to heavy bands of snow is moving through that area now, which has prompted me to update you on what i’m thinking soo far. I am HIGHLY confident that areas in southern and central Kentucky, including Bowling Green could get 5+” of snow. As for central Kentucky, 4″-6″ looks likely as well by Monday morning. Keep in mind the heavier totals are south of I-64.  Have a great evening and stay safe!

TROPICAL LABOR DAY WEEKEND #KYWX

12:50PM AUGUST 30,2014

Nice and dry start to the Labor Day weekend, here I have all the unanswered questions. Can we go to the football games without getting wet? Can we grill out this Labor day? These answers are coming up. I’m watching a tropical wave of energy that’s cascading from the gulf through the Mississippi river valley. The problem wont be the storms, but in fact the heavy torrential rainfall that’s coming with it. Here is a look at the RADAR courtesy of RADARSCOPE. Don’t let that full you that’s not tracking our way all of that is moving NE, what I’m monitoring is the next wave that’s skirting across Bowling Green this hour. I would give it about 2-4 more hours before Lexington starts to see the rain. The game is going on right now, the Wildcats V. Skyhawks! Just to be safe, for the fans or for the tailgaters out there, I hope you got your rain boots for later!

How much rain? You may ask.
This is an estimate for SUNDAY afternoon, several areas could see close to an inch or more, this precedes when the actual system itself passes, so anticipate several inches of rainfall to come into play on Sunday.
