Good Friday, folks. Our Memorial Day weekend is here, but severe thunderstorms are going to play a big role in your plans. Rounds of strong to severe storms will move in here and could cause some significant issues.

The greatest severe threat comes Saturday afternoon through early Sunday…

Damaging winds, large hail and tornadoes are all possible during this time. The Storm Prediction Center has the entire region in the risk area for Saturday…

In addition to the risk of severe storms, flash flooding is also a real possibility. The bluegrass state has picked up a lot of rain over the past several weeks, including flooding rains in recent days. It’s not going to take much to cause additional flooding problems.

The storms will decrease Sunday night and Monday morning, with a decent day for Memorial Day. More storms return by the middle and end of next week as temps run on the cool side of normal.

What about today? Warm and humid air is moving in with temps in the upper 70s to low 80s. Once into this afternoon and evening, we will need to watch for some storms going up. Any storm that goes up this evening into tonight can be strong or severe.

I have you all set to track today’s action…
