Severe threat for parts of the region

Good Sunday, folks. It’s another warm and humid day as a cold front rolls our way. That front will touch off gusty winds and the potential for a few late day strong thunderstorms. Behind the front comes some better air to start the week.

A line of storms may be ongoing across western Kentucky early today. This action may decrease the farther east it gets, but the severe threat may make it all the way into central Kentucky this afternoon and evening.

Here’s the current Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:

Damaging winds and large hail are, as usual, the primary players. A tornado or two will also be possible, especially in the west.

With or without thunderstorms, winds are going to be a big player today and could reach 40mph at times.

This front blows through Sunday night and actually makes a bigger push than I thought. That brings cooler and better air in here for Monday and Tuesday. Humidity levels come down as temps drop back into the comfy 70s for highs for many areas. Skies look dry to boot.

At the same time, another massive severe weather outbreak is beginning across the plains. This one has a little wow factor to it.

Temps ahead of this should rebound quickly into the middle 80s by Wednesday as strong southwesterly winds kick in. That’s when areas of central and western Kentucky have a chance to see severe storms…
