Good Friday, folks. We’re starting out the day with near-record lows and frosty conditions across most of Central and Eastern Kentucky. This threat is now behind us, and it’s time to focus on the next threat: severe weather.
Rounds of showers and storms will roll across Kentucky Friday night and Saturday. These boomers could pack quite the punch. Here’s a look at the potential:
Showers and storms will be around early Saturday as a warm front lifts into the region. That will put parts of the region into the warm sector of a storm system. This will increase the instability, which leads to an increased chance of strong or severe storms.
The future radar from the NAM shows some big-time storms rolling across the region Saturday afternoon and evening:
Conditions will improve later Sunday as drier and cooler air sweeps back in from the northwest.
Have a great day and take care.
