We’re in the type of weather pattern that allows storms to develop to our northwest and then try to run into our neighborhood. Some storms in southern Illinois this morning look like they’ll hold together to move into the western half of southern Kentucky and northwestern Middle Tennessee before they fizzle around midday. I don’t really trust much of what the computer models are saying, so I won’t post any radar-simulation images. Overall today, the best storm chances will take shape in southern Kentucky and northern Middle Tennessee, with lower chances as you head south:
Even if you get a passing storm to cool things off a bit, the humidity isn’t going anywhere. More scattered storms will be possible tomorrow and Wednesday, but even then our severe-weather potential will be limited:
Right now it looks like the best storm chances will get nudged off to the south by the end of the week…the worst of the humidity should be similarly nudged away from us as well. That time frame is still the back half of the 7-day forecast though, so stay tuned for possible changes.
