BIG DAWG WEATHER Archives for 2022-06

Rain Likely Later Today

The Big Dawg Weather Blog is presented by:

Scattered thunderstorms are likely later today and tonight ahead of a cold front. Gusty winds, cloud-to-ground lightning, and brief heavy rainfall would be the main threats. Storms will be most active from 3 pm to midnight, especially south of I 64, with the most concentrated area south of the Blue Grass Parkway. Hopefully, mother nature will give us some much-needed rain; the GFS model shows the most concentrated rainfall in Southeastern Kentucky but also gives parts of central Kentucky at least some rain. 

GFS MODEL 

A very unsettled period of weather is expected Friday and Saturday. Scattered showers and storms are expected. Some of these will contain heavy rainfall. With next weekend being a holiday, I will monitor the latest forecast for you! Have an excellent Sunday, folks! 

Rain Chances Increasing

The Big Dawg Weather Blog is presented by:

Good Friday Afternoon, Folks! Scattered thunderstorms are expected later Saturday and Sunday into Sunday night ahead of a cold front. Some of these storms late on Sunday could be strong to severe. Gusty winds, cloud-to-ground lightning, and brief heavy rainfall would be the main threats. 

U.S. Drought Monitor

Looking at the U.S. Drought Monitor, much of the central and eastern portions of the state are abnormally dry, with parts of Central Kentucky already in a moderate drought. We need the rain, and much of the data shows some decent rainfall totals.

Fingers crossed that we receive some much-needed rain this weekend. As always, I'll be monitoring our severe weather potential! Take care, and have a great weekend, folks! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dangerous Heat Expected This Week

The Big Dawg Weather Blog is presented by:

Good Sunday Afternoon, Folks! A few thunderstorms will be possible late tonight. Gusty winds and lightning will be the main threats if storms develop. Beginning tomorrow, hot afternoon temperatures in the 90s and increasing humidity will yield heat index values above 100 degrees by the early to mid-week time frame. In addition, a few strong to severe storms are possible Monday. Damaging wind or large hail will be the main threats if storms develop. With dangerous heat expected this week, below are some heat saftey tips! Now is the time to prepare for extreme heat. Check on your friends, family, and neighbors, especially the elderly. Make sure to know the signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke and know what actions to take. Together, we can all stay safe!

 

Alert Day Issued for Wednesday

The Big Dawg Weather Blog is presented by:

Good Tuesday evening, Folks! Rounds of showers and storms will continue to impact our area for much of the week. Some isolated storms are possible this evening into tonight, but a better chance for strong to severe storms arrives tomorrow through tomorrow night. The main threat with any storm will be damaging winds and small hail. Heavy rainfall is also a concern, especially in areas that received several inches of rain last night. Flash Flooding is also a concern in flood-prone and poor drainage areas. The Storm Prediction Center has placed the entire state in a slight risk for severe weather tomorrow, which means scattered severe storms are possible.  

Ill keep you updated, stay weather aware throughout the day tomorrow! 

 

Rounds of Storms Expected this Week

The Big Dawg Weather Blog is presented by:

Good Sunday afternoon, Folks! Were looking at a stormy setup for the week, with thunderstorms, some strong to severe, occurring Monday afternoon into the overnight period. Damaging winds are the main threat, though an isolated tornado and/or small hail can not be ruled out. Localized flooding also is possible in areas that see persistent storminess late Monday night. Additional storms are forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday. A few of these storms could become strong to severe on Wednesday, with gusty winds and small hail as the main threats.

Heavy rainfall is a good bet with the southern half of the state seeing the best chance for heavier rain. Below is the WPC rainfall forecast over the next 5 days, areas in the darker purple and red could see between 2-3 inches of rain this week. I'll keep you updated on the latest! Have a great week, folks!
