Tracking the severe storms threat

Good Saturday, everyone. It’s shaping up to be a busy weather day across Kentucky as rounds of showers and thunderstorms roll through. Some of these storms could become strong or severe as the day wears on.

Here’s a breakdown:

– General run of the mill showers and storms will be around for the first half of the day as a warm front slides through the state.

– This front will only get so far to the north before slowing down as low pressure sweeps in from the west. Areas along and south of that front and track of the low will have the best threat for severe storms.

– Damaging winds, large hail and a few tornadoes will be possible. That’s especially true for areas that break out into some afternoon sunshine and see thermometers climb into the high 60s and 70s.

– A 30 degree or greater temperature gradient is likely to be noted across the state today.
