Stormy setup rolls on

Good Wednesday to one and all. Strong to severe thunderstorms pounded much of the bluegrass state on Tuesday. These storms put down significant tornadoes out West, with damaging winds and large hail across Central and Eastern Kentucky.

Wednesday’s storms won’t be as potent, but a few could still be on the strong side. The best threat for strong storms may wind up across the southern half of the region. I will get to your tracking goodies in a moment.

A strong cold front moves in late Thursday into Thursday evening, and could be the focusing mechanism for another round of severe storms. Check out the storms on the NAM:


Heavy rainfall is a good bet with these storms as they roll through here. Given how much rain has fallen in recent days, we have to watch for local high water issues.

Friday’s weather looks much better with some sunshine and low 70s.

Another front arrives by Saturday morning with a broken band of showers and storms. The air coming behind this is cold for the middle of May. Highs on Saturday should range from the upper 50s to low 60s:


Lows by Sunday morning could drop deep into the 30s:
