|HPC/NOAA QPF Precipitation Forecast Valid for Monday 00Z - Wednesday 00Z.|
As anticipated, showers and storms will begin to develop across the region as the front slides through the Commonwealth Tuesday morning. Development for stronger storms will lye across southern parts of Kentucky as more moisture and instability will exist. Rain should become more widespread by tomorrow evening while pushing northward as the disturbance tracks through the Ohio Valley. Pop-up showers and a few storms will be likely Tuesday across south-central KY extending towards the Bluegrass region. The HPC/NOAA precipitation forecast continues to hint towards a moderate rainfall event, especially across southern and southeastern portions of the state. Model guidance continues to show highs running in the upper 80's, but increased cloud cover will hinder those high temperatures a bit as mid 80's will be more realistic with tomorrow's conditions.
