More dry days, than wet

More dry days, than wet

Enjoy the weather today and tomorrow!  Sunshine and upper 60s today, then mid 70s tomorrow!   A cold front arrives Wednesday packing scattered showers and possible a few strong storms.  Another chance of scattered showers and storms for Saturday.

The Storm Prediction Center hasn't nailed down a Slight Risk of Severe Storms yet for Wednesday.  Only a 5% chance is hatched off for mostly southeastern Kentucky at this time.  Image below.

Notice the precipitation lining up along the west-to-east oriented front.  It could take the entire day to get the front through the area with it moving through at that angle. 

So, it may end up being a busy day if storms decide to fire up and possibly become organized.  Below, is the CAPE, or the available fuel for storms.  This simply shows us, there is food available to get storms going and keep them going.  It's not all that high, but we've seen big storms with this amount before.

All in all, we don't expect an outbreak of severe weather, but will need to watch any stronger storms if they develop Wednesday afternoon.
