Good Sunday afternoon everyone. A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH is now out for much of the bluegrass state until 10pm. This does include the Lexington metro. Storms will continue to fire up into the evening hours and many of these will go severe. Damaging winds and large hail will be the main threats.
Here’s a work at the watch and the latest warnings…
This watch overlaps a watch already in place across far northeastern Kentucky. Both watches go until 10pm.
These storms will contain a ton of lightning and torrential rainfall. Local flash flooding can’t be ruled out with the stronger storms.
Here’s regional radar…
I will have updates as needed and will send out warnings via twitter. @kentuckyweather.
Have a great rest of your Sunday and take care.
