Severe Storms For Thursday

Good evening, folks. It’s full steam ahead toward what appears to be a very active Thursday across the bluegrass state. Strong to severe storms continue to look likely during the afternoon and evening hours.

The Storm Prediction Center expanded the Slight Risk area to include much of Kentucky…

Damaging winds, large hail and a few tornadoes will be possible. That’s especially the case if supercell thunderstorms can crank and that’s certainly an increasing possibility. The SPC continues to expand the tornado risk deeper into Kentucky…

In addition to the severe risk, local flash flooding issues will be possible.

On another note, the trend is colder with the Saturday system as the rain/snow line may very well drop into northern Kentucky. Ugh.

I leave you with your evening tracking toys…

Have a great evening and take care.

Updating The Severe Potential

Good afternoon, everyone. It’s a mainly nice weather day, but the focus is on the potential for severe storms for Thursday. This comes courtesy of a strong cold front working into the region from the west and northwest.

The Storm Prediction Center continues to have the entire state in the risk area, with the emphasis on central and western Kentucky…

Damaging winds and large hail will be likely, but a few tornadoes will also be possible. You can see the SPC highlighting the tornado potential…

These storms will also be torrential rain makers and this could lead to local flash flooding issues.

I will have the latest on WKYT-TV starting at 4pm then again on KWC this evening.

Here are your radars to get you through the rest of the day…

Have a good one and take care.

Strong To Severe Storms Possible Thursday

Good Wednesday, everyone. It’s a better looking day across Kentucky, but it turns stormy again as we head into Thursday. This is when we see the potential for a few strong to severe storms going up. Our hyper-active spring pattern is just getting started. Ugh.

Today’s weather is better than yesterday, but still isn’t perfect. We will see mostly cloudy skies with some sun from time to time. There’s still a risk for a shower or storm to go up…

Temps will range from the upper 50s to middle 60s.

A strong southwest wind kicks on on Thursday as another cold front works our way from the west. Temps will spike ahead of this front, adding a little juice to the atmosphere and giving us the potential for strong storms. The Storm Prediction Center has much of the state in a low-end risk for severe weather through Thursday night…

Damaging winds and large hail are the main players to watch for, but a tornado or two will also be possible. The prime time for the severe threat comes during the late afternoon to evening hours.

After a break in the action for Friday, another round of rain and some thunder rumbles in for Saturday. From there, rounds of showers and storms appear common through next week. This much wetter than normal pattern has been well telegraphed for a while now. The Ensembles continue to be crazy consistent in showing the core of the heaviest rains around here and points southwest…

I will have updates later today, so check back. Make it a good one and take care.
