Good Tuesday morning to one and all...
I hope your summer is going swimmingly. I know some of the lawns and gardens out there may be griping a little bit. We did get the showers and storms yesterday, but they did not affect everyone equally. That's the unfortunate part about 'disorganized' showers. Today was to be the day when an actual front swept through to get everyone one more bout of rain. However, this front is looking pretty lacking. In fact, all the squall lines it has generated over the past few days have pushed all the action well ahead of the actual front, not leaving a whole lot behind. Here's the NAM:
|NAM - Clouds and Rainfall - Tuesday 2pm||NAM - Clouds and Rainfall - Wednesday 2am|
I suspect alot of folks out there (most likely those who have really wanted it to rain as opposed to people standing on the 11th green without an umbrella) are going to look up and wonder where all this rain is at. There should be some sun poking through today, and that warmth will destabilize the atmosphere. As the actual front makes its approach this afternoon, look for some ignition along the front-- but according to this model there doesn't seem to be much left to work with. Whereas I would normally be expecting Eastern Kentucky to get some storms in the early afternoon, these maps are implying we'd be talking more about rainbows than anything else. Then again, that's what the 'tracker' maps are for (below). ;-)
High pressure re-establishes itself following the front. This is going to give us a few more rockin' summer days in a row. It's just too bad it's in the middle of the week, though we should hold onto it at least until the start of the weekend. Here's the surface map:
|HPC - Tuesday PM|
...And here are the temperatures that go with it (according to the GFS):
|GFS - MaxTemps - Wednesday||GFS - MaxTemps - Thursday||GFS - MaxTemps - Friday|
No complaints here!
