Good Saturday everyone. What a Friday of wild weather across the bluegrass state. We had one of the hottest days on record and had storms pound parts of the area with damaging winds. I will say it until I’m blue in the face… extreme is the new normal. We should have another extreme weather day going out there today with triple digit temps and some storms cranking.
A derecho formed near Chicago early Friday and then took a southeasterly turn into the Ohio Valley. This bad boy grazed northern and eastern Kentucky with damaging winds of 70mph. This complex of storms also sent out a belch of wind into areas of the state that didn’t receive a drop of rain. Here’s a neat graphic showing the progress of the derecho…
Can we get in on another one today? The atmosphere may try to spin up something similar and that’s something we will need to watch for. Outside of any possible storms… temps will hit 100 degrees again in many areas. I have you all set to track the storms and heat…
More heat and additional storm threats will be with us Sunday into early next week. Scattered storms will try their very best to become more widespread in the coming days.
Have a great Saturday and take care.
