Tracking Strong Storms

Good afternoon, everyone. Showers and thunderstorms continue to overspread the state from west to east and could cause a few issues. From here, more in the way of showers and storms rumble across the state through Friday as we wait for a strong cold front to move through.

The low-end threat for severe weather continues across much of the state through this evening…

Damaging wind will be the main player, but there’s just enough spin available for a brief tornado, but the threat is still pretty low.

These storms will also contain a lot of water that can cause spotty flash flooding.

Rounds of storms continue to come at us Thursday and Friday as temps make a run toward the 70s. Once again, storms may be strong or severe, especially across areas of western and central Kentucky. This is where the SPC is targeting…

Windy, dry and chilly weather blows in behind this front for Saturday. Lows by Saturday and Sunday dip into the upper 20s for some. Sunday looks good with a nice rebound into the 50s with a mix of sun and clouds.

Another stormy setup kicks in next week.

I will have the latest on WKYT-TV starting at 4pm and as needed through the day. Here are your tracking tools for the rest of our Wednesday…

Strong Storm Potential

Good Wednesday, everyone. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms are targeting the region for the rest of the week and some of these storms may be strong or severe. This repeat storm action is also likely to drop quite a bit of rain through Friday.

Let’s start with what’s out there today. Much milder air is pushing in from the southwest with readings hitting the 60s. A scattered shower or storm will be possible, but the main action arrives from west to east this afternoon and evening. Some of those storms may be strong or severe.

The Storm Prediction Center has a low-end risk for severe storms across parts of Kentucky today…

The threat for strong to severe storms will then push farther east ahead of our front on Thursday…

Outside of the storms, temps could reach the low 70s on a gusty southwesterly wind. Additional strong storms will be possible into Friday as our cold front presses in. Temps should hit the 70s one more time before colder and drier air settles in for the weekend.

I will have updates as needed today and will have the latest on WKYT-TV starting at 4pm. Until then, here are your tracking tools for the day……
