Tracking the severe weather threat

By  | 

Rounds of showers and thunderstorms are on the way to central and eastern Kentucky. We will also see an increased risk for strong and severe thunderstorms Thursday into Friday.

Here's a breakdown of what to expect:

- Showers and storms will be scattered this evening into tonight... especially across northern Kentucky. Some of these could be strong.

- A few clusters of storms will roll into central and eastern Kentucky late tonight into Thursday morning. Some of these may be strong with heavy rain.

- The best severe weather threat comes late Thursday into Thursday night and Friday. That's when a strong cold front crosses the state. Severe weather is possible ahead of this front. Damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes will be possible.

- Cooler and drier air works in for the weekend.
