Severe Threat Later This Week

Good Tuesday, everyone. Warm temps have returned to the bluegrass state, but the severe storms threat is about to take center stage. That arrives ahead of a potent cold front set to swing into town toward the end of the week. That may be followed by another rain and storm maker for the weekend.

Temps today reach the low 80s in many areas as skies stay partly sunny. There’s the slight chance for a shower or thunderstorm in the north and west.

The setup for the next few days is primed for a major severe weather event from the plains into the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys. Wednesday’s action is largely centered west of the bluegrass state, but a few strong to severe storms may sneak in later in the day. Here’s the Wednesday Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

Thursday into Thursday night is the prime time for severe weather across the bluegrass state. Most of the region is now in the risk area for severe weather…

Damaging winds, large hail and tornadoes are all possible with this particular setup.

The storms will move out early Friday as some cooler air moves in. From there, we are watching the southwestern sky for another potent low pressure to move toward the state. This may bring widespread rain and storms in for the weekend…

That’s from the European Model and it’s certainly something we don’t want to see. Regardless of how much rain, it’s a cool looking pattern this weekend into next week.

Make it a  great day and take care.
