Tracking strong storms and heavy rain

Good Saturday, everybody. It’s a very active weather weekend taking shape for central and eastern Kentucky. Rounds of showers and strong storms are rolling across the state, bringing the potential for high winds, hail and flooding rains.

The Storm Prediction Center has much of the area in a low-end risk for true severe storms today and tonight:

Here’s a breakdown of what to expect this weekend:

  • One round of storms moves in early today, weakening as it moves east.
  • A break in the action will follow, with temps surging deep into the 70s on a strong southwesterly wind.
  • Showers and strong storms will then develop across the west and slowly move eastward this evening into the overnight.
  • Damaging winds and large hail are possible with the strongest storms.
  • Heavy rainfall of 1″-3″ will be possible across parts of central Kentucky, especially.
  • The heavy rain will slowly taper off on Sunday as colder air surges in here.
  • Northwesterly winds will then produce rain and snow showers on Monday. Highs may not get out of the upper 30s.

I have you all set to track today’s stormy weather:
