Wild weather on the way

Good Thursday, everyone. We have one more calm day before we get into a pretty wild looking setup to start the weekend. That’s when a potent storm system moves our way, likely causing some issues as it moves through.

Here are my updated thoughts:

  • Rounds of showers and storms then work in from late Friday through Saturday night, bringing a flood and flash flood risk.
  • The greatest high water risk continues to be across western and parts of central Kentucky.
  • A few strong to severe storms will be possible on Saturday.
  • High winds of greater than 50mph will be possible Saturday and Saturday night.
  • Near record high temps are possible on Saturday, especially across eastern Kentucky. That’s where temps can reach 70-75.

The winds are likely to be a major issue with this setup. Gusts of 40mph or higher are possible Friday:

That’s nothing compared to the gusts coming Saturday into Saturday evening. The models are going for 60mph+ gusts for some areas…

Have a great Thursday and take care.
