Tracking the severe weather threat

Good Saturday to one and all. We have rounds of strong to severe storms ready to rumble across the state this weekend. These storms may cause some significant issues across Kentucky, with damaging winds and flash flooding being the primary threats.

Rounds of storms rumble across the state today through Sunday night. Each storm cluster can produce damaging winds, large hail and even a few tornadoes.

A Mesoscale Convective System may develop and roll across the state this evening and tonight. Damaging winds will be the main threat if this event gets cranking.

The actual cold front moves in late Sunday with another round of severe thunderstorms possible.

Given how wet the ground is, and the amount of moisture available for these storms to tap, flash flooding is a very real concern this weekend.

In between storm clusters, you can get several dry hours with warm temps and high humidity levels.

The good news is that our Memorial Day weather looks much better with mainly dry skies and temps in the 70s for most of our part of the world.
