Tracking Thunder Chances Ahead

Good Wednesday, everyone. It’s another absolutely gorgeous day in the bluegrass state, but stormy changes are a brewin. A cold front brings our next chance for storms by Thursday night, with a much stronger system waiting in the wings for the weekend.

Temps today are back into the 70s for most areas, but only upper 60s in the north. Skies stay partly to mostly sunny.

Strong southwesterly winds increase for Thursday as a cold front sweeps our way. Temps ahead of this can make a run at 80 degrees. The front will fire up a line of showers and storms along and ahead of it. The best threat for strong to severe storms will be across areas of western and central Kentucky.

Here’s the Thursday Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

That risk will really diminish quickly as the front loses steam on Friday…

Morning showers and storms on Friday will push away as the day wears on with partly sunny skies taking control. Winds are a big player with this system and may reach 40mph or greater.

That nice weather carries us into the first half of Saturday, but a much bigger system rolls in quickly later in the day and takes us through the rest of the weekend. Showers and storms arrive from the southwest late Saturday and that may impact Thunder Over Louisville.

This is a very potent storm system…

After a brief cool down by Monday, temps rebound in a hurry by the middle of next week. Another 80 degree run is possible ahead of the next big storm…

Stormy times, my friends!

Have a good one and take care.
