Good Wednesday afternoon/evening folks. It has been a while since I have posted a weather update here within our blogs. It has been somewhat calm for the most part & as of tomorrow that looks to change since we do have a chance for severe weather in our local area.
Let’s get down to what we are watching for your Thursday:
The latest update has our area in a SLIGHT Risk for severe weather tomorrow (timing is currently from 3 PM to Midnight Eastern time, I will go into those details below). See below of the category definitions in regards to risks:
The main threats with these storms are damaging winds & even an isolated tornado, possibly for the South-Central KY area.
Now as of timing, as stated above, the time frame is currently at 3 PM through Midnight tomorrow & this is Eastern time. (also see attached graphics courtesy of NWS Louisville):
Thursday Morning – Early Afternoon – Could see some widespread showers & a few pop up thunderstorms, and we can’t rule out seeing brief heavy rainfall that could lead to some localized flooding issues.
Thursday Late Afternoon 2 PM – 7 PM Eastern Time – Southern KY will see scattered storms, a few of these storms could produce damaging winds & hail. We also cannot rule out an isolated tornado in the South-Central KY area, as mentioned above.
Thursday Evening – We will see a broken line of storms. These storms will still have the chance to be severe meaning we cannot rule out the threat of damaging winds or brief spin-up tornadoes. The severe threat will diminish as the night goes on by Midnight.
Overnight Thursday – As the severe weather threat diminishes, gusty winds will remain overnight. Sustained winds around 15-25 mph & gusts up to 35 mph are possible.
I will continue to monitor the latest forecasts & data & provide updates as needed here & on-air on 98.7 The Buck. As always we will have your live weather coverage from The Buck Weather Center when severe weather strikes.
