Another round of severe weather ahead

Good Thursday, everyone. We have another mega cold front pushing our way, and this bad boy will bring the severe weather threat back to town. The front is separating winter from summer and will have a ton of wind energy to work with.

Severe weather is likely today west of Kentucky as a squall line develops across the Mississippi Valley. That line will sweep into Western Kentucky this evening, then into the Bluegrass region later tonight and early Friday morning.

Damaging wind is the primary threat from this line of storms. Large hail and isolated tornadoes also willbe possible.

Speaking of winds, gusts today could top 35 mph at times as thermometers head into the 80s. Cold air will blast in behind the front on Friday, with afternoon highs nearing only the 50 degree mark.
