Tracking The Severe Threat

Good Sunday, everyone. It’s a day of rounds of showers and storms impacting parts of the bluegrass state, with some of the storms being strong or severe. This is all coming from a strong storm system working into the region from the southwest.

Before I turn you loose with the tracking toys… some thoughts:

  • Showers and storms will be around to start the day and a few could be strong or severe.
  • Heavy rains may cause local high water issues.
  • Skies will try to break for a while and allow temps to spike into the 70s across central and eastern Kentucky.
  • That temp spike should allow for additional strong to severe storms to develop, especially across the eastern half of the state. Eastern Kentucky has the greatest severe threat.
  • Much colder air sweeps in behind our front as temps hit the 30s overnight. There’s even an outside shot a few Monday morning flurries in the mountains.
  • After a cool Monday, temps turn warm very quickly ahead of the next storm. That may bring another severe threat later in the week.

Here are your tracking tools for the day…

    Is there a way to make that storm chaser interactive tool show radar loop for the past 24 hours?

    Can’t help you out there as I have not mastered the internet. It’s all a puzzle to me. About two inches of rain fell from the current storm in my backyard. Dogwood Winter starts tomorrow as the low will be in the mid thirties but weather looks nice until next weekend. Awful windy here right now and I notice on the radar a line of showers to our west. Temperature seventy six degrees with a falling barometer. I’ll be glad when Spring and or Summer overtake this stormy season.

      Due to the excessive pack snow in the upper Midwest and Central Canada with lingering chill after the snow finally melts off up there, I think we see plenty of severe weather until early June myself. I may be wrong, but I think the storms will really ramp up going into May. Looks favorable anyways, but I may be wrong!

    WKYT does not even list Clark, Fayette, or Madison in the tornado or wind advisories. Another welcome storm miss?

      Don’t see them on the TV scrolling thingy.

        Big win!

          Yes there are people in my subdivision who had roof damage from the high winds a few weeks ago. No thanks. I’m happy it missed us 🙂 🙂
          I mean, it’s cool to see severe weather but it’s just not worth it.

        The I-75 corridor was basically on the western fringe of that Tornado Watch. Thus places like Knoxville, Lexington and Cincinnati were in the crosshairs for only a short time before far west sections of the watch started to be discontinued.

          Oh, I have some egg on my face!

          I posted a few days ago that most of the severe stuff through the weekend would p-a-s-s to our south. Evidently, in my haste I read only up to Saturday (in Storm Prediction Center sources anyway) and overlooked Sunday/today. There of course has been plenty of severe wx today, as far north as Ohio. Even if there was a relatively low tornado risk today, there were still good chances of damaging t-storm winds reaching severe criteria.

          Of course, the real pros like CB have things well taken care of! Thanks, Chris!

    No storms my way but the wind was pretty strong out today.

    Madison really hasn’t had their first, so hopefully the miss streak continues. Of course it won’t always, but still 🙂
