Storm Tracker Monday- 1:30pm Update

Showers and storms are blowing across the region early today.

1:30pm Update

Good Monday to one and all. We're coming off a wild weather night across the tri state that felt more like May than January. A squall line of thunderstorms rolled through here bringing gusty winds and heavy rain.

Where do we go from here? Let's break it down with the headlines.

- Winds will continue to crank up this afternoon and may reach 40-50mph at times.

- Things finally begin to calm down overnight into Tuesday.

- Slow moving upper level low across the south will throw rain our way for Wednesday into Thursday.

- A deep trough will be digging into the central and eastern part of the country late week into the weekend and will bring winter back in.

- What kind of interaction will we get from our southern system and the trough digging in? Some models suggest not much , while others show the two getting together with a storm working up the east coast.

- Even if there isn't a big storm… that’s a pattern to get a few snow systems diving in from the northwest.

Have a great Monday and take care.

2:30am Update

Good morning. A new SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH IS now out for much of eastern Kentucky and southern Ohio until 9am. A squall line of thunderstorms continues to work eastward across the state with damaging winds the main threat. An isolated tornado and large hail are also possible.

Here’s a look at the watch outline…

This map allows you to track the current warnings…

I will update things as needed and continue to tweet the latest warnings. Take care.
