Severe storms possible today

Good Tuesday, everyone. We have a very active weather day taking shape across much of the state, leading to the potential for strong to severe storms. This action is ahead of a strong cold front, with a mega-temp gradient along it.

Here’s a breakdown of the day:

  • Strong storms may be noted early today, as a warm front lifts northward across the state.
  • This warm front will unleash a warm, moist and unstable air mass that will take us through the rest of the day.
  • Highs may reach 75–80 if we can get enough sunshine ahead of the front, then will drop to near freezing behind the front by Wednesday morning.
  • That big temp swing will help fuel a line of strong to severe storms racing eastward across Kentucky later today into tonight.
  • Damaging winds, large hail and a few tornadoes are all possible.

I have the blog all set to be your one stop shop for severe weather tracking:
