Strong To Severe Storms Threat

Good Thursday, everyone. It’s a windy and warm day across the Commonwealth as scattered showers and storms rumble across the region. The greatest risk for severe weather moves in tonight as we get ready for a strong cold front to work in here. Once this clears, the weather does clear up for the weekend.

Temps today can easily reach the 70s with a mix of sun and clouds and gusty southwest winds. A shower or storm will be possible once again.

The chance for severe weather increases late this evening into the overnight hours, especially across western and central Kentucky. Here’s the Severe Weather Outlook from the SPC…

Damaging winds, large hail and a few tornadoes will be possible in this region.

That risk area focuses farther east, but in lower fashion for Friday…

Temps will head toward the 70s ahead of the Friday front.

The weather behind all this looks much better for the weekend. Highs will be in the upper 40s to low 50s for Saturday with a mix of sun and clouds. Temps look even better on Sunday as we keep some sun.

The pattern returns to rather mild and stormy for next week and beyond. Check out the Euro Ensembles 10 day temperature anomaly average for the final 10 days of the month…

This warm pattern is likely to spawn additional severe weather opportunities.

I will have the latest on WKYT-TV starting at 4pm and with another update later today. Here are your tracking tools for your Thursday…
