Storms coming to Kentucky, wind is greatest threat

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Emergency officials are warning Kentuckians to brace for possible strong to severe thunderstorms expected to rumble across the commonwealth ahead of a cold front.

Kentucky Emergency Management officials say the worst of the storms could hit overnight in parts of the state.

The National Weather Service office in Paducah says the storms will develop Tuesday evening in western Kentucky, bringing strong winds, the possibility of isolated tornadoes and locally heavy rain.

The storms will push into the central part of Kentucky by late Tuesday night.

The storms will be mostly a daytime threat in eastern Kentucky on Wednesday. The winds should subside Wednesday evening in the east.

While rain could be heavy, forecasters say the storms will be moving rapidly, diminishing the possibility of flooding.
