Stormy weather takes us toward Derby Weekend

Good Wednesday to one and all. Our temps are feeling more like June than the first day of May. This summer feel is about to turn into a stormy setup as we roll into the long Kentucky Derby Weekend.

Highs today are in the 80s for most of central and eastern Kentucky. The potential is there for a few thunderstorms to go up, especially in the north and west. That’s where the Storm Prediction Center has a low end risk for severe storms:

Here are your radars to track anything that fires up today:


That threat shifts farther east on Thursday and should encompass much of the state…

A few thoughts:

  • The storms come at us in waves and clusters with several hours of breaks in between
  • Strong to severe storms may develop. Damaging winds, hail and isolated tornadoes are possible.
  • Humidity levels are very high, so some decent rain totals will be possible. Check out some of the numbers through Saturday:

After a break in the action on Sunday, the pattern next week continues to look very active in terms of severe weather.

Have a great day and take care.
