Good afternoon, everyone. It’s a very active pattern taking shape through Saturday night as a few rounds of big thunderstorms rumble into the region. The cold front rolling in here Saturday night will bring the greatest severe threat to the Commonwealth.

Temps today spike into the low and mid 70s north, with low and a few middle 80s possible west and south. Wow!

Winds will be gusty and a few strong or severe storms may impact areas of northern Kentucky this evening. Here’s the current Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

Saturday is another very warm and windy day with temps in similar fashion to today. This happens as a potent storm system works from the Mississippi Valley into the Great Lakes, dragging a cold front into Kentucky Saturday night.

This setup is likely to produce a major severe weather and tornado outbreak to our northwest. Here in Kentucky, we will likely see a line of strong to severe storms sweep across the state Saturday evening into Saturday night. Here’s the Saturday Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

Gusty winds and a little cooler air follows that for Sunday.

The next storm system is still on track for Tuesday and Wednesday.

I will have the latest on WKYT-TV starting at 4pm. I leave you with your tracking tools to take you through the rest of the day…
