Strong storms possible Thursday

Good Wednesday, everyone. It’s another fairly mild day with a shower or thunderstorm risk showing up. The main threat comes Thursday as a potent cold front moves into the picture. That may lead to some strong storms during the afternoon and evening.

Let’s begin with today and roll ahead. Temps range from the upper 50s to low 60s with a mostly cloudy sky. There’s still the risk for a stray shower or storm going up:

Wednesday looks like a mix of clouds and sun with temps ranging from the upper 50s to upper 60s, depending on where you are. There’s still a small storm risk.

Thursday continues to look like a fairly active weather day with the potential for strong to severe storms going up ahead of a cold front. Temps may spike to 70 on gusty southwest winds. Once the front arrives late in the day, rounds of big boomers will be possible.

The Storm Prediction Center has much of the state in the low-end severe risk:

The next system then rolls in here for Saturday with rain and some thunder. That’s followed up by several systems next week. Folks, this is a pattern that can bring too much rain and rounds of strong storms to Kentucky and many areas:

The GFS Ensembles show rainfall WAY above normal in the next 2 weeks:

This could get a little ugly.

Have a wonderful Wednesday and take care.
