Good Monday, everyone. Rounds of strong and severe thunderstorms will rumble across the state Monday and Tuesday. Damaging winds, large hail and tornadoes are all possible.
Severe storms are possible at any point Monday, but I’m becoming more concerned about the setup for Monday evening. That’s when the air looks primed for severe weather across Central and Eastern Kentucky. If sunshine breaks out today, that will allow for the atmosphere to destabilize and will increase the potential for severe storms.
I have you all set to track the storms:
