Even with a few pop up showers late Monday evening, it wasn’t enough to even put a dent in our dry conditions. In fact, the shower that pushed through Bowling Green didn’t even add anything to the rain gauge at the airport, leaving us still with only a trace of precipitation for the month of September. We don’t see another chance of rain until Sunday, and even that isn’t a guarantee.
In the meantime, it’s going to be more of the same; hot and dry for southern Kentucky. Thankfully, our temperatures won’t be AS hot as the upper 90s of late, but still nearly 10 degrees above normal for this time of the year. As stated above, our next minor chance of rain doesn’t arrive until later Sunday. We could see a slightly better chance of rain heading into Monday along another weaker cold front. This appears to be slightly stronger than that of Monday evening, but it still doesn’t drop temperatures significantly or look to provide that much needed soaking rain.
The tropics are also very active, but this area of high pressure will prevent any of the new systems from reaching us. Tropical Storm Imelda has formed near the Texas coast and will stay virtually stationary. Tropical Depression Ten, soon to be Tropical Storm Jerry, will reach the Hispanola area and possibly the Bahamas, but our strong high pressure system will likely steer Jerry back out to sea, similar to what has happened with Hurricane Humberto.
