Gusty Winds and Strong Storms Possible Today

Good Saturday, everyone. It’s shaping up to be another warm and humid day, but the severe weather threat has a chance to take center stage. A potent severe weather outbreak has been just to our west over the past few days and looks to get into parts of Kentucky today.

A line of storms may be ongoing across western Kentucky early today. This action may decrease the farther east it gets, but the severe threat may make it all the way into central Kentucky this afternoon and evening.

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

Damaging winds and large hail are, as usual, the primary players. A tornado or two will also be possible, especially in the west.

With or without thunderstorms, winds are going to be a big player today and could reach 40mph at times.

This front blows through Sunday night and actually makes a bigger push than I thought. That brings cooler and better air in here for Monday and Tuesday. Humidity levels come down as temps drop back into the comfy 70s for highs for many areas. Skies look dry to boot.

At the same time, another massive severe weather outbreak is beginning across the plains. This one has a little wow factor to it.

Temps ahead of this should rebound quickly into the middle 80s by Wednesday as strong southwesterly winds kick in. That’s when areas of central and western Kentucky have a chance to see severe storms…
