Severe Storms Threat Increases

Good Sunday, everyone. This is a very active setup taking shape through the next few days, and it could deliver some severe storms to parts of the state. This threat comes from a potent cold front moving in early Monday. That front will give us more rain and unleash a big chill down as the week wears on.

This is shaping up to be a healthy severe weather outbreak for the Ohio Valley and that may include parts of Kentucky by tonight. The latest threat map from the Storm Prediction Center now includes more of the bluegrass state…

Damaging winds, large hail and a few tornadoes are all possible across the region. While the greatest threat may be just north and west of the Ohio River, I’m concerned about some of this focusing farther south with time.

Please keep in mind, this may be an overnight severe weather threat across Kentucky. There’s never a good time for severe weather, but that’s especially true when talking about when most people are sleeping.

Even without thunderstorms, wind gusts from this afternoon through tonight are going to be STOUT! The Hi Res NAM is now spitting out 40mph+ gusts…

The front then puts the brakes on across the region on Monday, allowing for waves of low pressure to develop and roll across the region through mid-week. That means more rain…

That’s a very chilly rain, too. Temps go below normal for the middle and end of the week…

I have you all set to do some tracking…

I will have another update later today. Enjoy your Sunday and take care.

    Sign up for alerts on your phone through your favorite media.

    Programmable weather radio such as Midland with Specific Area Message Encoding or SAME. It can be just as easy as setting up a contact list for your phone. Print out or save the link below. Find the SAME code for your county and, I suggest, any counties directly just north, northwest, west, southwest, and south of your county. Only these counties including your own will be alerted on your radio.

    Nice weather this morning. More like spring than fall. The birds are singing and heard lots of katydids last night. Thanks for the updates CB.

    Just had to post this on the tornado, which occurred on 11-6-05. I was living in Evansville at that time.https://www.weather.gov/pah/2005EvansvilleTornado
