Tracking a busy weather day

Good Thursday, everyone. We have a strong cold front moving across the region, and this is bringing some very active weather to our region. High winds and strong thunderstorms will unleash a much colder pattern as we head into early April.

Here’s a rundown of what to expect Thursday:

  • High winds might reach 40 to 45 mph at times … without thunderstorms.
  • Scattered showers and thunderstorms develop from west to east late Thursday and early Friday.
  • A break in the action Thursday afternoon might allow for enough sun to boost highs into the 70s.
  • Lines of strong to severe thunderstorms then fire up across Western Kentucky in the afternoon. Those will then roll eastward across the rest of the state into the evening hours.
  • Damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes will be possible.
  • The greatest risk of severe weather is across the west, but I expect the slight risk area to shift farther east in the evening.

I will have your tracking tools in a bit.

The next week to 10 days will feature multiple freeze threats. The first comes Sunday, with additional blasts next week. Look at the crazy temperature departures showing up on the European model:

Green thumbs are on high alert.
