Severe Storms For Thursday

Good evening, folks. It’s full steam ahead toward what appears to be a very active Thursday across the bluegrass state. Strong to severe storms continue to look likely during the afternoon and evening hours.

The Storm Prediction Center expanded the Slight Risk area to include much of Kentucky…

Damaging winds, large hail and a few tornadoes will be possible. That’s especially the case if supercell thunderstorms can crank and that’s certainly an increasing possibility. The SPC continues to expand the tornado risk deeper into Kentucky…

In addition to the severe risk, local flash flooding issues will be possible.

On another note, the trend is colder with the Saturday system as the rain/snow line may very well drop into northern Kentucky. Ugh.

I leave you with your evening tracking toys…

Have a great evening and take care.

    CAPES look higher for southern parts of the state. Be careful down state.

      I know it can be tragic, and I certainly don’t like seeing that happen anywhere for anyone, but I love tracking severe weather about as much as snow. So I am weather obsessed, lol, can’t help it 😛

        I know, right? I’m deathly afraid of tornadoes(seeing the one in Nelson Co 4/3/74 almost in my backyard and killing a friend of my mom’s,who was also my mom’s cousin’s mother in-law…whew!-lol!)but anyway, I would love to go storm chasing (with good action)just once! My 2nd daughter is named Wynter, and the one after her is named Reed, after Reed Timmer, the storm chaser extroadinaire! LOL! And she’s really into tornadoes, too!

        Good seeing you back commenting Terry. I wondered about you when I didn’t see you there for a while.

          I love those names for your kids, cool 🙂

          Sorry to hear about direct loss from that super outbreak:(

          I wish I was a certified met or just out there chasing sorms! I know that was my calling but it got muted and now I am getting old, knocking on 40’s door. Boo!

            Yeah, the April 3 tornado will always haunt me. I was 11 and watched it tear through Boston,KY through the Samuels area of Nelson Co.-I could only see the top half of it over the knobs. The lady who died worked with my mom but had taken that day off to wallpaper her bathroom. Her son was married to Mom’s cousin & they had a little girl. Neighbors tried to get them to go across the road to the church basement, but she wouldn’t-she just gathered everyone onto the bathroom floor and laid on top of them-nothing left but a concrete slab after. I remember seeing mom’s(and guess she was mine, too?!) cousin & little girl in the grocery a week or so later and they were literally nothing but “walking bruises”….wow….I’ve always been afraid of storms but that sealed the deal. I’m in mid 50’s now and not AS scared, but still….! Kids make fun of me because I watch “Twister” during bad storms…lol!

          There’s a part of me that would love to storm chase at least once. Hopefully later, but for now raising a family is the important thing at the moment; I now wish I had storm chased when I was single and before becoming a father.

          Severe storms do fascinate me a lot. But I also saw the devastating aftermath of April 27 2011 near Chattanooga. Homes virtually leveled, trees stripped of their bark, etc. Until my brother finally got in touch with our parents that evening to learn they were safe, we went for what seemed like an eternity not knowing how they were which was scary.

          About a week ago, a co-worker of my wife had a perilous close call when the Nashville tornado caused EF2 damage only about ten house away.

          BTW, I was born roughly a decade after the April 3 1974 outbreak.

    It will be interesting to see the SPC update that come out at 2am eastern/1am central.

    The conditions/parameters were not exactly off the charts for March 3 2020, but an EF4 (the Cookeville TN tornado) still developed along with the other twisters. True, storms can underperform as well. But one needs to be prepared for anything.

    Update on surveys for March 3 storms:
