Wild weather changes ahead

Good Saturday, folks. The warm and humid weather we’ve been having over the past few days just isn’t supposed to happen this time of year. This type of weather is often a harbinger of some wild weather and that’s exactly what we have ahead of us.

The storm system that will bring the big changes has been wrecking havoc to our west. Devastating tornadoes on the front side of the storm hit parts of the midwest. Behind it… a blizzard with nearly 40″ of snow and 71mph winds. Wow!

The storm will roll eastward and have a major impact on our weather Sunday and Monday. Let’s break it down…

– Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be around today as warm and windy weather rolls on. Highs will top out in the upper 70s to low 80s.

– Severe weather will be possible today into tonight for areas just to our west.

– The front moves our way on Sunday. Scattered thunderstorms will be around early in the day as winds really crank up. A squall line of thunderstorms will race into central and eastern Kentucky by Sunday afternoon and evening.

– Some of the storms late Sunday and Sunday evening may be strong or severe. If we can get several hours of Sun ahead of this line… watch out. Damaging winds will be possible.

– The slow moving line of showers and storms will then continue into Sunday night and early Monday. Locally heavy rains of 1″+ will be possible.

– Very chilly air comes in behind it by Monday. Highs may struggle to get to 60.
