Good Tuesday, folks. Rounds of strong and severe storms rumbled across Kentucky Monday and Monday night. More storms are on the way later Tuesday, and some of them could become severe.
Here’s a breakdown:
- Morning showers and storms will quickly scoot to our east. That will leave partly sunny skies and highs in the upper 70s to near 80.
- Thunderstorms will redevelop late Tuesday afternoon and evening. Those storms will race eastward across the state, and damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes are possible.
- Much of the region has picked up 1 to 3 inches of rain since Sunday night. With more heavy rain on the way, we will need to watch for local high water problems.
- Scattered showers and storms will slowly diminish Wednesday as cooler air moves in from the Northwest.
- The forecast for Friday is for breezy and cool conditions and isolated showers. Highs look to be around 60. Saturday, Derby Day, will see highs in the upper 60s to near 70, with a slight chance of showers.
