Strong to severe storms possible tonight

Good Saturday, folks. It’s another May day across central and eastern Kentucky as this toasty pattern continues. Once we get into later this evening, our focus then becomes on the potential for strong to severe thunderstorms racing in.

Temps today will be back into the upper 70s to low 80s with a mix of sun and clouds. Winds will be gusty ahead of the storm deepening to our west. A line of strong to severe storms will develop and work from west to east later this evening into the wee hours of Sunday morning.

Here’s the current Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:

Damaging winds are the main threat with this line of storms, but large hail and a tornado will be possible.

Gusty winds will blow in here for Sunday and may reach 40mph at times. Skies become mostly sunny with temps in the upper 60s to around 70.

Clouds will filter in on Monday ahead of our next system. This looks to bring some ugly in here to end March and kickoff April:

Temps on Tuesday may not get out of the 40s.

Temps will bounce back after that, but the signal for cooler than normal temps continue to show up for early April. The Euro Ensembles show the first 10 days averaging colder than normal for much of the region:
