Rounds of strong storms today

Good Thursday to one and all. Rounds of boomers are rolling across the region for the next few days and some of the storms may be strong or severe. This is taking us up to Kentucky Derby Day which is looking a little soggy as of now.

Today’s storms will be more prominent in the afternoon and evening and some could be severe. Here’s the Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:

Damaging winds and large hail are the primary players with any severe storm going up. Heavy rainfall may cause quick rises on area creeks and streams, too. It’s not going to be constant rain today and temps can reach 80 outside of the storms.
