Sunny Election Day, Storms Late Wednesday

We go from sunshine to thunderstorms over the next two days. Chief Meteorologist Shane Smith maps out the storm chances in tonight's weather blog.

Good Monday evening, I hope you enjoyed the sunshine we had across the mountains today.  We've got more of it in store for Tuesday as high pressure continues to build across the region.  Your Election Day forecast is calling for temperatures to start in the lower 50s , and rise to the lower 80s by the afternoon.

 

A few strong thunderstorms will be possible late Wednesday.  The Storm Prediction Center has us under a slight risk of severe weather Wednesday night with the main threat being hail and heavy rain producing storms.

The best chances of these storms will be up near I-64, but a few of them could dip into Southern and Eastern Kentucky.  I don't think this will be a big deal severe weather event, just some typical strong early summer style storms. 

As we look on to the long holiday weekend, the forecast looks awesome!

Most of your Memorial Day weekend plans should be A-Ok weather wise, however a few storms are possible late Monday.
