Good Saturday to one and all. It’s a decent weather day taking shape across the bluegrass state, but severe storms are lurking for later tonight into Sunday. That’s when a potent storm system begins to impact the area.
A mix of sun and clouds will be noted across Kentucky with just a scattered shower or storm going up, especially in the south and southeast. Temps range from the mid 60s to the low 70s.
At the same time, a major severe weather outbreak is unfolding for areas to our southwest. Some of that action gets into the west before the evening is over. Here’s Today’s Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:
Late tonight and Sunday continues to look like the prime time for severe weather across central and eastern Kentucky. Much of the region is in the elevated risk for severe storms during this time:
Strong to severe storms move into western and central Kentucky later tonight into very early Sunday morning. That line should weaken as it gets into eastern Kentucky.
Additional strong to severe storms will then develop across central Kentucky by late Sunday morning into the afternoon. That may explode as it moves across the rest of the state quickly during the afternoon.
Damaging winds, large hail and a few tornadoes are all possible. In addition to the severe threat, local flash flooding issues may develop.
The action will diminish quickly as cold air pushes in from northwest to southeast late Sunday. Lows by Monday morning hit the 30s.
Here are your tracking tools for this Saturday:
Have a great Saturday and take care.
