Good Saturday, everyone. It’s a pretty wild weather day taking shape across Kentucky as a potent storm works into the Ohio Valley. This setup has been well advertised for the past week and change, so now it’s time to see what all Mother Nature can bring our way.
Let’s begin with the latest Severe Weather Outlook from the SPC…
Here are some thoughts about the day:
- A squall line of strong storms works into western Kentucky early this morning. This line may fade a bit as it moves east.
- By late morning, the line may increase again as it works out of western Kentucky into central parts of the state.
- Damaging wind continues to be the absolute main threat with this line. There’s a small tornado risk as well.
- This line of strong to severe storms then works across central and eastern Kentucky this afternoon and evening.
- With or without severe storms, winds are a major player. Gusts in excess of 50mph will be possible.
- The greatest threat for flooding continues to be across western Kentucky.
- Ahead of the storms, record highs are likely today. Many areas of central and eastern Kentucky may reach 70-75.
I will have updated later today. As always, I leave you with your storm tracking tools…
