Severe Weather Tracker

Good Saturday, everyone. The bluegrass state faces an increasing risk of strong and severe thunderstorms today as a powerful system rolls in from the west. This means rounds of thunderstorms will work eastward across our region today into the overnight hours.

Here’s a brief breakdown of what may happen today…

A line of storms will approach central Kentucky from the west around daybreak. This should be in weakening fashion, but will still need to be monitored.

Additional thunderstorms will fire up as the day wears on and any storm can quickly go severe.

A squall line of storms will sweep eastward across the state this evening into tonight.

The main threat from today’s storms will be damaging winds and large hail. Isolated tornadoes will be possible… especially across central and western parts of the region.

Have a wonderful Saturday and take care.
