Severe storms threat

Good Sunday to one and all. We’re wrapping up the weekend on a very warm note across central and eastern Kentucky. This warm air is about ready to take a backseat to the increasing threat for severe thunderstorms over the next few days.

A slow moving storm system is spinning across the plains and will throw rounds of thunderstorms our way through Wednesday. The first round arrives from west to east late today into tonight. This one looks to be the weakest of the bunch, but still bears watching.

The air becomes much more unstable Monday into Tuesday and that’s when the greatest threat for severe thunderstorms arrives. Here’s the setup:


Waves of thunderstorms may deliver damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes. In addition to the severe storms potential, heavy rainfall is a good bet and that could lead to local high water issues.

The heavy rain and severe storms threat will slowly diminish on Wednesday as much cooler air settles in. Scattered showers look to accompany the cooler weather and that may hang around into Kentucky Derby weekend.

Back to the potential for storms later today. I have you all set to track:
