Better weather blows in today

Good Saturday, folks. It’s a really nice weather day taking shape across the region, but we have another front on the move for Sunday. That will bring a renewed threat for strong thunderstorms across our region. There’s also a steam vs storm battle taking shape later next week.

Let’s begin with today and roll ahead. Humidity levels and temps are down compared to the past several days with most areas in the middle 80s.

There is still the threat for a storm or two going up, but the chances are fairly low across central and eastern Kentucky. The west is closer to the Sunday front, so they have a better risk for some late day storms and a few could be strong. Here’s today’s Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:

The low-end threat for severe storms then moves east into much of the state for Sunday:

Damaging winds and large hail are the main players. These storms will also have a lot of rain, so local flash flooding issues may develop. I will get to your tracking tools in a bit.

Monday looks awesome with highs 80-85 with low humidity and a mix of sun and clouds. I can’t rule out a morning shower in the east, but the day looks dry.

Temps take off for the middle and end of next week with the west seeing the hottest air. However, the clear trend is now for more thunderstorm action to work across the state through next weekend:

Some big time thunderstorms can move around a heat ridge like that, so we will need to be mindful of this going forward. Thunderstorms can knock the numbers down.

I leave you with your Saturday radars:

Have a great day and take care.
