Good Saturday, everyone. We have a big time cold front rolling across the state today and this will bring the potential for some big time thunderstorms. There is the potential for strong to severe storms this afternoon and evening.
Temps ahead of this system will top out in low 70s with a slight chance for a shower or storm. As the front nears from the west, a line of showers and thunderstorms develops and rolls east.
The Storm Prediction Center Severe Weather Risk for the day:
Damaging winds will be the main threat, with large hail following that up. Locally heavy rains will also be noted and some areas could pick up better than an inch of rain.
Winds will be very gusty as temps crash behind the front. Readings reach the upper 20s by Sunday morning, with a period of mixed rain and snow possible for a few hours very early Sunday. A northwest wind may also squeeze out a few early day flakes in the mountains of eastern Kentucky. Sunshine takes over by the afternoon as temps stay in the chilly 40s.
Temps will be a little chillier than normal through the first half of the week, with temps back toward 70 by the second half of the week. That’s also when the next threat for showers and storms shows up, especially on Friday.
As usual, I have the blog all set to be your one stop shop for Saturday storm tracking:
Have a great day and take care.
