Storms and Gusty Winds Today

Good Wednesday, everyone We have a potent cold front working across the state today and it’s bringing active weather with it. Strong storms and gusty winds are sweeping across the state as a shot of ugly looms for the final day of April.

Once into early May, temps take off, but that doesn’t mean we are done with the spring chill just yet. I will get to that in a bit.

Today’s storms initially weaken early today as they move east, but look to refire along and ahead of the front. That means central and, especially, eastern Kentucky run the risk for strong storms. Can we get a few severe storms out of this? I think it’s possible.

Here’s the current Severe Weather Outlook from the SPC…

With or without storms, winds may reach 40mph at times today.

Once the front blows through here, an upper level system spins right on top of us for Thursday. That keeps the showers going across central and eastern Kentucky. It also keeps us very chilly, once again.

As a matter of fact, this system may linger into Friday. Low clouds and spotty showers may show up across the eastern half of the state to begin May. That would keep temps way down if it happens…

The numbers jump into the 70s for Saturday and Sunday, with a shot at 80. Our next system moves in quickly late Sunday into early Monday with showers and the potential for strong storms…

Another storm system moves in by the middle of next week. This unleashes another round of well below normal temps…

This can produce a frost threat into the middle of May. Slow that roll, green thumbs.

I leave you with your Wednesday rain and storm tracking tools…
