Good Thursday everyone. Strong and severe thunderstorms blasted the bluegrass state last evening and it looks like we aren’t done with the storms just yet. Another round of some big boomers will be likely late Friday into Friday night ahead of a powerful cold front.
Today’s weather will be warm and very humid with temps hitting the upper 80s for many. Can we fire up a few storms? You betcha! Here’s the regional radar to keep an eye on:
The storm system rolling in by the weekend will be arriving a bit earlier than I first thought. Low pressure will head into the Great Lakes by Friday night and Saturday and this will drag a cold front across Kentucky. Scattered thunderstorms will crank up by Friday afternoon with the potential for a squall line of storms by Friday evening into Friday night. Damaging winds will be a possibility.
Here’s how the NAM looks:
The quicker arrival of the cold front means showers and storms may clear out of the region by Saturday afternoon. Much cooler air works in and this will leave us with a taste of October with highs in the upper 60s and low 70s with lows in the high 40s and low 50s.
I will update the possibility of severe weather later today. Have a great Thursday and take care.
