Tracking the severe-weather threat

Good Monday, folks. It feels a little like spring, with warm and humid air in place. I know a lot of people like that feel, but that isn’t a good thing on a day like this. It will help create thunderstorms across the region. Some of these could be strong or severe.

The greatest risk of severe weather will be across the western half of Kentucky. That’s where we are likely to see a squall line of storms develop. That line would slowly work eastward into Central Kentucky overnight. Eastern Kentucky might not get that until Tuesday.

Damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes will all be possible with that line. Torrential rainfall is quite likely, and that could lead to some high-water problems for some people.

Ahead of this line, scattered showers and storms will be around, and a few of those could be strong.

Much colder air filters in from west to east on Tuesday as a strong upper level low settles in:


Winds and showers will go join the chilly air to make for a couple of raw weather days.

Have a great Monday and take care.
