Another Big System Rolls Our Way

Good Tuesday, everyone. We have a pretty mild day taking shape, but it’s full steam ahead toward another big storm system heading our way. This moves in here with high winds, heavy rain and the potential for strong storms on Wednesday. This continues to be part of a super-active setup with some big temp swings into May.

A shower or storm is possible early today as warmer winds blow from the southwest. Those winds are going to be a player through Wednesday ahead of our approaching storm system. This will bring the potential for a few strong to severe storms across the west today. Here’s the current Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

As our system moves east into Wednesday, this line weakens early then tries to fire back up across the eastern half of the state. Here’s what the SPC has for tomorrow…

Winds are going to be gusty over the next few days and could top 40mph at times. If our line of storms does in fact increase again across central and eastern Kentucky Wednesday, those gusts could be much higher. That’s certainly something the Euro is seeing…

This storm system really cranks as it heads into the Great Lakes, but it also slows down as an upper low dives in behind it. That should make for some ugly on Thursday…

With showers and a northwest wind, highs on Thursday may not get out of the 40s again across the east…

As May arrives Friday, our temps take off and push 70. What would have been Kentucky Derby Saturday looks awesome with highs flirting with 80 degrees.

The next system then arrives with the potential for strong to severe storms late Sunday and Monday…

Another system follows that up by the middle of next week and should be able to produce another big storm risk. It may also unleash more colder than normal air into the region. This is ugly into the middle of the month…

That’s WAY below normal. Folks, don’t do any planting just yet!

Here are your tracking tools for the day…

Make it a great day and take care.
