The cold front is now working into eastern Kentucky with winds gusting to near 40mph at times. Temps have dropped into the 30s behind the front and we've had reports of sleet and snow mixing with the rain in Lexington.
We are still tracking more storms that are firing up north of Kentucky. These will travel along a very similar path and dive into Northern & Central Kentucky tonight.
Most of the storms that we have tracked through the area have packed a very gusty punch. Many reprts suggest that wind speeds recorded were around 50-65mph. Strong enough to cause some problems.
Damaging winds and large hail are the primary threats from storms that are diving in from the northwest over the next several hours.
Some of these storms have already produced quarter sized hail and winds topping 60mph.
Torrential rainfall is also likely and this could lead to flash flooding for some spots. We will see several thunderstorms roll over the same location tonight. Those storms could put down a few inches of rain in a short amount of time.
The storm threat will diminish on Thursday as cooler and drier air works in for the end of the week.
Today is a First Alert Severe Weather Day and that means we will have constant updates on WKYT-TV and on wkyt.com .
