Severe storms possible today

Good Tuesday, everyone. We have a potent cold front sweeping across the bluegrass state, and this will bring the potential for severe weather. This is being pushed by another taste of September temps for the rest of the week.

Today’s storms come at us in the form of a squall line later this afternoon into the evening. Damaging winds will be the main threat we’re facing, but some large hail can’t be ruled out. These storms will also be torrential rain makers, but should move fast enough to preclude any true flood threat.

Here are the tracking tools for the day:

A leftover shower or storm will be noted early Wednesday, but skies slowly clean up in the afternoon. Highs will be in the upper 70s. Temps look to stay generally in the 70s for through the weekend with lows in the 50s.

This should be another gorgeous night for high school football action across the region.

From there, we watch the tropics and the potential for a couple of systems to develop. The one in the Gulf looks the most threatening on the models:

As you can see, some models have that system bringing rain to our region, but that’s a long way from being a certainty.

Have a great day and take care.
