Tracking high winds and strong storms

Good Saturday to one and all. One day after snow shut down schools, we are tracking the potential for strong to severe storms and high winds. This is basically the month of March just showing off.

A potent storm system is rolling from the plains into the Great Lakes, bringing mild and unstable air into the region. This is resulting in rounds of showers and thunderstorms going up through tonight.

Some of these storms may be strong or severe with damaging winds, large hail and a tornado or two. The best chance is across the western half of Kentucky. Here’s a look at today’s Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:

Torrential rains will also accompany these storms and could put down enough rain to cause flash flooding issues to develop.

High winds are going to be a major player. Gusts of 50-60mph will be possible, even without thunderstorms:

As usual, I have you all set to track today’s action:
