Good Wednesday everyone. The stormy period we’ve been advertising got off to a thundering start Tuesday as storms raced across the state. These boomers put down 1″-2″ of rain for much of central and eastern Kentucky as winds cranked to 35mph.
Additional rounds of thunderstorms will move across the state today and that action may hang around into Thursday and Friday. Some of the storms may become strong or severe with large hail and high winds possible.
We will also have to keep a very close eye on the rain situation as situations like this can produce flooding issues. That’s especially the case for areas getting in on repeat thunderstorm action.
The HPC continues to advertise a heavy corridor of rainfall, but these totals don’t include teh torrential rains thunderstorms can produce.
I have you all set to track today’s storm threat:
I will have updates as needed and will send out quick updates via twitter: @kentuckyweather .
