Strong to severe storms possible

Good Thursday, everyone. What’s left of Alberto is finally out of our region, but the tropical temps and humidity remain. This will combine with another system rolling in to produce shower and storms later today. Some of those could be strong or severe.

A storm or two will be noted out there early today, but much of the action arrives this afternoon and evening. Clusters of strong to severe storms will develop and move in from the west.

The prime time for severe weather is this evening into the wee dawn hours of Friday. Damaging winds and large hail are the main threats, especially across western and central Kentucky.

Here’s the Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:

In addition to the severe threat, repeat storms may produce enough rain to cause local high water issues.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will then continue into Friday. Outside of the storms, temps will continue to run steamy with temps deep into the 80s.

Saturday will find only a slight chance for storms around, with highs well into the 80s.

A cold front makes a run at us on Sunday and may fire up some strong storms:

Much cooler air then comes in behind this system into early next week:

Let’s get back to where we are today. I have your Thursday storm trackers all ready to rock and roll:
