A broken line of storms will then develop right on top of central and eastern Kentucky during the afternoon and evening. Not everyone sees storms, but the storms that do crank could be strong or severe. Here’s the current Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:

Make it a great day and take care.
