Good Sunday, everyone. We have a very active weather day taking shape as the threat of severe thunderstorms moves in. I have the blog all set to become your home for severe weather tracking.

Here’s a breakdown of how the day might go:

– Scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop early today, and some of those may be on the strong side. Isolated severe weather will be possible with this initial round.

– Even without thunderstorms, winds today might cause some problems. Gusts of 40 mph or more will be possible.

– A break in the stormy weather might come during the afternoon hours as we focus our attention on the cold front barreling in from the west.

– A line of severe thunderstorms is likely to be along and ahead of this front as it races eastward. The prime time for this line to impact central and eastern Kentucky will be from 6 p.m. to midnight.

– Damaging winds will be the main threat from these storms. There is enough shear in the atmosphere to produce a few tornadoes.

Here’s what you need to stay on top of today’s active weather:
