Chief Meteorologist Shane Smith has a look at a steamy forecast that will lead to some strong storms.

Good Monday evening from the Sky Alert Weather Center.  It's been another warm and humid day across the Commonwealth.  The heat and humidity lead to a few storms, but most of us stayed dry today.  That will not be the case over the next several days as we see several chances of showers and storms.  

A few storms are work in from the west and will cross Eastern Kentucky during the overnight.  Here's a look at the radar to track the storms as they move through.

 

Radar:

 These will be just typical garden variety storms.  The NAM forecast model is showing the storms moving in during the early morning hours.  Here's a snapshot of it's future radar product for tomorrow morning.

6:00 AM Tuesday

After the morning storms we will see partly cloudy skies and more humid conditions.  The storms fire back up again late Tuesday, and the NAM model is picking up on it.

9:00 PM Tuesday 

The storms have a chance to be on the stronger side on Wednesday.  An area of low pressure will develop in the upper Ohio Valley  on Wednesday and will cause some of the storms to have some punch.  The main risks appear to be damaging winds and large hail.

Wednesday Weather Risk:

The best chance of storms appear to be late in the day.  The NAM model is suggest it will be around 11:00 PM, but I'd be on the look out all day on Wednesday.

11:00 PM Wednesday

 The 7-Day forecast shows that once the storms move out, some drier air moves in.  

 Keep it with WYMT as we track the storms the next few days.
