Severe weather threat for Friday

Good Thursday, everybody. It’s another nice day across central and eastern Kentucky, but stormy times are on the way. This storm action for Friday may be strong or severe as much cooler air moves in for the weekend.

Highs today are in the low and middle 80s with a mix of sun and clouds. There is the chance for isolated showers and storms later today into the evening:

Our potent upper level low will dive in here from late Friday into the weekend. We have set the stage for this for more than a week, with your apps and human weather apps just now catching on. 😉

Ahead of this upper low, we have the increasing threat for strong to severe storms from later Friday into Friday night. The Storm Prediction Center has much of the region in the risk area:

Damaging wind is the main threat, with the potential for isolated tornadoes. In addition to the severe weather threat, torrential rains may also cause local flash flooding.

Additional rounds of showers and storms will then carry us through the weekend as the upper level spins across the Ohio Valley. Heavy rainfall will again be possible:

Temps will be MUCH cooler than normal with highs in the 70s likely, especially in the central and east.

Another big blast of cool is on the way for next week and may be accompanied by another round of weather. Watch how secondary system develops after the frontal passage:

Enjoy your day and take care.
