Strong to severe storms possible again today

Good Thursday, everyone. It’s shaping up to be another stormy day across central and eastern Kentucky. Rounds of boomers look to target the region, bringing the potential for another round of severe storms.

Here’s a look at today’s risk area from the Storm Prediction Center:

Damaging winds and large hail will be the primary players from these storms. In addition to the severe threat, torrential rains may cause local high water issues.

As we look ahead, this extreme pattern looks to flip around as we head into June. Cold fronts are actually going to drop into the eastern half of the country during this time.

But, before we get to June, we have one more day left of May. Temps will likely be in the 70s with a few showers and storms going up:

As we head into the weekend, we watch a cold front dropping in from the northwest late Saturday into Sunday. This should bring additional showers and storms our way:

Temps on Saturday will generally be in the upper 70s to low 80s with gusty winds. The numbers on Sunday come down into the pleasant 70s for highs.

The next system looks to dive in here by the middle of next week:

Again, this looks to be a much different overall pattern showing up across the country as we start Meteorological Summer.

Once again, I have you all set to track today’s action:
