Sunday severe weather tracker

Good Sunday, folks. Today is shaping up to be another very active weather day across central and eastern Kentucky. Rounds of strong and severe thunderstorms will rumble through the region into the evening hours.

The setup today looks much more like one you would see in the springtime instead of the middle of Summer. Very warm and humid air is pushing in from the southwest as a strong cold front moves our way from the northwest. These two look to get together to give us an increased threat for severe weather.

The greatest threat appears to be across the eastern half of the state. This is where the atmosphere has some spin with it and that may be enough to spawn a quick tornado or two.

Damaging winds and hail will also be possible with any of the storms that crank up. Torrential rainfall and a lot of lightning will be likely with these storms.

Calmer weather moves in later tonight as the front passes to our east. That will introduce fall-like temperatures that may flirt with record lows in the coming days.

As usual, I have the blog all set to track today’s potential severe weather event.
