Tracking The Severe Threat

Good Sunday, everyone. It’s a day of rounds of showers and storms impacting parts of the bluegrass state, with some of the storms being strong or severe. This is all coming from a strong storm system working into the region from the southwest.

Before I turn you loose with the tracking toys… some thoughts:

  • Showers and storms will be around to start the day and a few could be strong or severe.
  • Heavy rains may cause local high water issues.
  • Skies will try to break for a while and allow temps to spike into the 70s across central and eastern Kentucky.
  • That temp spike should allow for additional strong to severe storms to develop, especially across the eastern half of the state. Eastern Kentucky has the greatest severe threat.
  • Much colder air sweeps in behind our front as temps hit the 30s overnight. There’s even an outside shot a few Monday morning flurries in the mountains.
  • After a cool Monday, temps turn warm very quickly ahead of the next storm. That may bring another severe threat later in the week.

Here are your tracking tools for the day…
