Good Friday afternoon everyone. A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is now out for parts of western and central Kentucky until 10pm this evening. This watch includes Lexington and Louisville. A line of severe thunderstorms will roll eastward this evening with damaging winds and large hail possible.
Here’s a look at the watch outline and the latest warnings…
Regional radar will help track the storms
Additional showers and storms will develop into the overnight hours and some of these may be severe. Heavy rain is a good bet with many of these storms and this could lead to local high water concerns. A FLASH FLOOD WATCH is now out for much of eastern Kentucky overnight.
I will have updates as needed and will send out warnings via twitter. Have a great evening and take care.
Good Friday to one and all. Our Kentucky Derby weekend is officially off and running and it looks like some storms may become an issue out of the gate. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will fire up across the state today and some of these bad boys may be strong or severe into this evening.
This is a warm and humid pattern that may repeat itself into Kentucky Derby Saturday. Some thoughts:
- A few rounds of storms will work from northwest to southeast across the region later today into this evening.
- Some storms could be strong or severe with hail and high winds.
- Highs today will generally run in the low and mid 80s. Storms and clouds will play a big role in local temps.
- Derby Day looks similar with some more scattered action around. Let’s hope it all avoids Churchill Downs.
