Good Thursday, everybody. We have a strong cold front working into the region, touching off some strong or severe storms. This action could also bring some hefty rain totals our way into Friday.
Scattered storms are possible at any point Thursday, but the main action comes in late afternoon and the evening. Damaging winds and large hail are the primary players.
Ahead of the storms, temps will spike into the 80- to 85-degree range in many areas.
Gusty showers and some thunder will carry us into Friday as temps drop from west to east. Temps might be in the 50s by late afternoon. Some 1 to 2 inches of rain is possible through Friday.
The weekend weather looks much better, with sunshine and highs approaching 80 by Mother’s Day.
Summer temps surge in next week, with some areas making a run at 90. This setup could lead to a big severe-weather setup late in the week.
I have you all set to do some Thursday storm tracking:
US 60 @ US 460
Hamburg Area from WKYT Studio
I-64 at KY-801
I-275 at Mineola Pike
I-75 @ Clays Ferry Bridge South
Between Lexington and Richmond
Make it a great Thursday and take care.
