Strong To Severe Storms Possible Thursday

Good Wednesday, everyone. It’s a better looking day across Kentucky, but it turns stormy again as we head into Thursday. This is when we see the potential for a few strong to severe storms going up. Our hyper-active spring pattern is just getting started. Ugh.

Today’s weather is better than yesterday, but still isn’t perfect. We will see mostly cloudy skies with some sun from time to time. There’s still a risk for a shower or storm to go up…

Temps will range from the upper 50s to middle 60s.

A strong southwest wind kicks on on Thursday as another cold front works our way from the west. Temps will spike ahead of this front, adding a little juice to the atmosphere and giving us the potential for strong storms. The Storm Prediction Center has much of the state in a low-end risk for severe weather through Thursday night…

Damaging winds and large hail are the main players to watch for, but a tornado or two will also be possible. The prime time for the severe threat comes during the late afternoon to evening hours.

After a break in the action for Friday, another round of rain and some thunder rumbles in for Saturday. From there, rounds of showers and storms appear common through next week. This much wetter than normal pattern has been well telegraphed for a while now. The Ensembles continue to be crazy consistent in showing the core of the heaviest rains around here and points southwest…

I will have updates later today, so check back. Make it a good one and take care.

      So was late December back in 63. 🙂

        Feederband, I remember that very well ” the temperatures reach well into the sixties and low seventies most of the month of December 1963 and very little precipitation. Can’t recall how the rest of the Winter turned out 1964. I remember the Winter of 1961 and 1962 where it was frigid cold and dry and maintained at lease a five inch snow cover most of the Winter. Our Winters don’t seem to be changeable anymore.

          Are winters were defiantly more snowy and cold. But we almost always had a January thaw. Where I live in Southern Ohio we had a big snow in February of 1960. I grew up in the fifty’s and sixty’s.

          • Schroeder says:

            Bus, In early March 1960 where I was living in south central Indiana we had the largest Snowstorm I ever seen up to four feet from two separate storms, and the biggest hail storm occurred in April. Yes, the nifty 50’s great times.

        • Schroeder says:

          Concerned about late tomorrow afternoon for my area of central Kentucky for the possibility of high winds, tornadoes and large hail. I will be watching and tuning in to Kentucky Weather Center until the all clear is given.

            Schroeder I lived in Xenia Ohio in 1974 when the tornado hit there. won’t go into a lot of detail but I left that day to go to my mom and dads.
            My wife at the time was at work and my two kids were at the baby sitters.They were one and three. There we six people killed in the area they were in. Just so happen there was a seller where they were and they got in it. It went right over them. The house was destroyed. I am white but my kids looked like black babies. There was a washer on the door of the seller and they had a hard time getting out. You do not want to go through a F 5 tornado. I saw things you would not believe. I could go on and on. But when you see a freight train blown over and school buses laying on top of the school its something to see. Everyone stay safe.

      Yeah. According to some, Chris was ignoring drought and being threatening.

    April 3 1974 I was 3 but barely remember that day here in WKY. We were lucky there were no tornados around here but we did get a hail storm with softball sized hail.
