Tornado Watch For Western Kentucky

Good evening, folks. Our severe weather season is off and running with an increasing threat for strong to severe storms. A TORNADO WATCH is already out for western Kentucky and we may see the risk area focused farther east into the overnight hours.

Damaging winds and large hail continue to look like the main players, but a few tornadoes will be possible.

Here’s a look at the current watches across the state…

Warnings are also out…

Here’s the latest Severe Weather Outlook for the region…

In addition to the severe threat, we have the potential for local flash flood issues to develop. That trend will be across the entire region as the storms move through. As of now, this looks fairly isolated.

Here are the rest of your tracking tools for the evening…

Tracking Heavy Rain and Strong Storms

Good afternoon, everyone. We have rounds of heavy rain and strong storms pushing across the region through tonight. Some of these storms may also be strong or severe for parts of central and western Kentucky.

The Storm Prediction Center has expanded the severe weather risk area for western and central parts of the state…

Damaging winds and large hail are the main players, but there is a small tornado risk in the southwest.

In addition to the severe threat, a lot of rain may fall through Tuesday morning. This could cause high water issues to develop and the WPC has us in the low-end risk for flooding…

The models continue to spit out additional rains of 1″-2″…

Thursday finds a southern system grazing the area with more rain as cold air pushes in from the northwest. That could lead to a few snowflakes by Friday.

Temps rebound quickly by Sunday with a mainly above normal pattern settling in through the middle of March…

I will have the latest on WKYT-TV starting at 4pm then again on KWC this evening. I leave you with your tracking toys for the afternoon…

Rain and A Few Storms Start The Week

Good Monday, everyone. Rounds of showers and a few thunderstorms are rolling across the state, bringing locally heavy downpours. This rolls into Tuesday, but the setup continues to look much better for the middle of the week. With the main flood potential setting up to our south, seasonal conditions continue to look more likely.

Let’s begin with today and roll ahead. Temps will be in the 50s to near 60 as those waves of showers and storms move through. There’s even the risk for a few strong storms in the western part of the state. Here’s the current Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

Gusty showers and a few storms continue for Tuesday as a front drops in with a wave of low pressure working along it. Rainfall numbers of 1″-2″ will be likely through Tuesday in many areas…

The Hi Res NAM has up to 3″ in the far southern part of the state…

The weather for Wednesday looks pretty decent, but Thursday has a few question marks. Colder air is diving in from the northwest as a southern system develops. As of now, those two stay separate, but it could be close.

After a cold start to the weekend, temps look to warm quickly by Sunday and into early next week.

I leave you with your early Monday tracking toys…
