Severe storms possible today

Good Wednesday, folks. It’s shaping up to be a bit of a bumpy day across the bluegrass state as rounds of showers and thunderstorms target the region. Some of these storms may be strong to severe before the day is over.

These storms will come at us in clusters, with the greatest severe threat this afternoon and evening. The Storm Prediction Center has much of the state in the severe weather risk…

The main threats are from damaging wind and large hail. I can’t rule out a quick spin up of a tornado, especially in the north.

Additional waves of showers and thunderstorms work across the state on Thursday. A strong storm or two will be possible as a cold front slides in. Low-level moisture looks to hang around into Friday and that should touch off a few showers and isolated thunderstorms. Temps may not get out of the 70s.

Another front drops in this weekend and could bring a few more showers and storms with it. This carves out a deep trough across the eastern part of the country:

That leads to a much better brand of air around here through early next week. Some of the models are showing an even deeper trough later next week:

As usual, I have you all set to track today’s severe weather potential:
