Strong Storms Possible Tonight- 9pm Update

A squall line of thunderstorms will race across the area tonight. Some could be strong.

9pm Update

Temps will continue to rise across the tri state as southwesterly winds gust up. These winds will continue to pick up overnight into early Monday as a cold front slams in from the west. Thunderstorms will increase and some of those may be strong or severe by daybreak. This is something I will continue to monitor and have updates as needed. Take care.

Previous Update

Good Sunday everyone. Our weekend weather has taken a walk on the wild side of things. We had ice, severe thunderstorms, sleet, flooding, rain, snow, mild air and cold air Friday night into Saturday across our region. Did anyone see locust? Let’s just go ahead and keep the extreme weather rolling with the possibility of strong or severe storms tonight.

We have a powerful cold front that is plowing into the plains states today and this will roll through here overnight with a squall line of thunderstorms. This line will develop across western Kentucky during the late afternoon and early evening hours and race in here thereafter. The Storm Prediction Center isn’t holding back on the potential to our west…

That is just crazy to see in the middle of January… especially this far north. Damaging winds will be the primary threat from these storms, with a tornado threat also in the mix. Areas of central and western Kentucky are most at risk, but I would expect that slight risk area to be pushed farther east as the storms progress.

It will be interesting to see how the early day clouds and cold temps play a role in all this.

I will get some storm tracking maps online later today.  and will have more updates. Your twitter timeline may blow up later today. ;) Have a great Sunday and take care.
