Thursday Evening Update

Good evening, gang. It’s awesome out there and we have one more day of aweseomness to throw your way. That’s before some big weekend changes blow into town, giving us the potential for strong to severe storms across much of the region.

My overall thoughts on the whole setup have not changed. Temps on Friday can make a run at 80 as southwesterly winds crank. This is ahead of a bowling ball in the atmosphere that rolls across the state late this weekend. It will throw one line of strong to severe storms into western Kentucky by Friday night. Here’s the SPC severe storms risk for Friday…

That line likely weakens as it rolls eastward into Saturday morning, but additional showers and storms develop late Saturday and carry us into Sunday. The Storm Prediction Center has a low-end severe risk across the Ohio Valley, but this may be underdone…

Damaging winds will be the primary threat from any severe thunderstorm action. High winds may also be common as our cold front sweeps eastward, dropping our temps throughout the day on Sunday.  A strong northwesterly wind flow may cause rain and snow showers to develop on Monday…

Temps rebound quickly after Monday.

Enjoy your evening and take care.

A Bumpy Weekend Ahead

Good Thursday, everyone. Windy and warm temps have taken control of our weather through Friday. Once into the weekend, our weather is going to take a little walk on the wild with heavy rain, strong storms and a big temperature crash.

Temps out there today will be deep in the 70s, with that gusty southwest wind cranking to between 30mph and 40mph.

Friday will be similar, but temps should do a little better and make a run at 80 in a few spots. Bring. It. On.

From there, it’s all about a wild weekend of weather. We have heavy rain, strong storms, high winds and a huge temp crash on the way. That temp drop may even throw a few flakes our way by Monday…

Here’s a look at the latest severe storms risk maps from the Storm Prediction Center…

FRIDAY

SATURDAY

Temps behind this system crash all day long on Sunday, with only low 40s showing up on Monday…

A quick spike in temps should occur behind that into the middle of next week…

That’s ahead of a system skirting by to our north, but it could knock the numbers down a few degrees with a slight chance for showers and storms.

A much bigger system may move toward us by next weekend, bringing another surge of warmth ahead of it…

I will have another update later today, so y’all come back, now.

Enjoy the gorgeous day and take care.
