Yes, most of the "chatter" is about the tropics right now. Watch the video below if you want to see some of the data I have been looking at.
In the meantime, we still have a cold front to deal with.
Impulse moving through IL/IN into OH today. Question here will be just how far south thunderstorms develop this afternoon. At this point, southern Indiana stands the higher chance than Kentucky. However, there is enough moisture building up west of 65 in KY that a rain chance is needed. So in general, higher risk areas for thunderstorms this afternoon looks to be north of 64 in Indiana and west of 65 in Kentucky. We will monitor the radar trends for any adjustments needed on this in regards to timing and coverage. Otherwise, hot with temps around 90 degrees today.
Still a risk for thunderstorms this evening over southern Indiana. It will depend on how active the radar gets in the afternoon period.
Looks mainly dry Thursday with all the main action closer to I-70. Therefore the heat will be the bigger issue.
The front will drop a bit more south Friday to increase rain chances up a notch or two. But it still looks quite scattered.
Not a whole lot of change here. The front will be draped through WAVE Country. But the wind fields will continue to fade. And there will not be a battle of dry vs humid air on either side of it. So thunderstorm coverage is in question right now. The plan is to keep rain chances low and temps around 90 or so until we get closer.
The video will cover the setup for this period into Labor Day Weekend. The tropics are like snow forecasting...a headache. Just not as fluffy.
