Tracking The Severe Threat

Good afternoon, everyone. It’s a very active pattern taking shape through Saturday night as a few rounds of big thunderstorms rumble into the region. The cold front rolling in here Saturday night will bring the greatest severe threat to the Commonwealth.

Temps today spike into the low and mid 70s north, with low and a few middle 80s possible west and south. Wow!

Winds will be gusty and a few strong or severe storms may impact areas of northern Kentucky this evening. Here’s the current Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

Saturday is another very warm and windy day with temps in similar fashion to today. This happens as a potent storm system works from the Mississippi Valley into the Great Lakes, dragging a cold front into Kentucky Saturday night.

This setup is likely to produce a major severe weather and tornado outbreak to our northwest. Here in Kentucky, we will likely see a line of strong to severe storms sweep across the state Saturday evening into Saturday night. Here’s the Saturday Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

Gusty winds and a little cooler air follows that for Sunday.

The next storm system is still on track for Tuesday and Wednesday.

I will have the latest on WKYT-TV starting at 4pm. I leave you with your tracking tools to take you through the rest of the day…

A Few Storms and Warm

Good Friday to one and all. It’s another windy and warm day across the Commonwealth as we watch a storm or two on the move. This action is mainly across the north, but it’s ahead of another busy pattern with two storm systems on the way over the next week.

Temps today are the big storm. The west and south can settle into the 80-85 degree range, while the north shoots for the low and middle 70s. That’s an area where we have a shot at a few storms going up. There’s still the chance for a few strong storms in the north. Here’s the Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:

As we head into Saturday, we have another very windy and warm day taking shape on a strong southwest flow. This is ahead of a potent storm wrapping up from the plains states and moving into the Ohio Valley. That drags a cold front across the state Saturday night with a line of strong to severe storms possible…

Here’s the Saturday risk for Severe Storms from the Storm Prediction Center…

Again, that risk would roll east into the wee hours of Sunday morning. High winds are the main threat and the EURO is spitting out some 50mph gusts…

Cooler and drier winds will be blowing on Sunday as temps hit the 60s. Those winds will be cranking through the day.

After a calm Monday, the next system rolls in here to end March and kick start April…

That continues to look pretty ugly, but may not be as cool as what the models were showing in previous days.

I will throw you another update later today. Until then, here are your tracking toys for the day…
