Powerful storm system moves in this weekend

It's a big weekend here in Kentucky. A lot of events are underway across Kentucky and the weather will cooperate... for Saturday only!

A powerful system is moving in from our west. This system has brought more than 3 feet of snow to some areas in the Plains and tornadoes in the Midwest. We'll be on the Springlike side of this monster. That means the potential of severe weather will be lurking in our area. The folks at the Storm Prediction Center have highlighted areas just tor our north (Ohio, Indiana, & Michigan) for the primary threat.

Not only is this a powerful system, it is also a slow mover. What does that mean for us? The possibility of heavy rain will be associated with this system. With the recent dry run... we should be able to handle this type of slow soaking rain rather than storms that produce a couple of inches in about one hour.

The timing of this system looks to be during the evening hours on Sunday and lingering into Monday.

A big chill will follow this powerful cold front into Kentucky. There's a really good chance we'll see highs drop into the low and mid 60s during the first part of the week. A true taste of fall.
