Our Halloween storm system is on track to deliver some nasty weather to the entire region. High wind, heavy rain and the threat for strong and severe storms will be with us. That is bad news for the kiddos looking forward to making those candy rounds.
Scattered showers and storms will be around into the overnight as temps stay in the upper 50s and low 60s.
The main show arrives on Thursday as a cold front works in from the west. Your breakdown goes like this:
- Scattered showers and storms will be possible early in the day.
- A wall of rain and thunderstorms will work into western Ky early in the morning and reach eastern Ky by evening.
- Heavy rainfall of 1″-2″ will be possible for some areas.
- Damaging Winds will be the main threat from Thursday afternoon into Thursday night. Gusts of 40-50mph will be possible. This could pose some significant issues before all is said and done.
- We also have the threat for severe thunderstorms. This isn’t your typical setup for severe weather like you would see in the spring or summer. Winds just off the surface will be screaming and it won’t take much to transport that down to where we live. Thunder and lightning may not be terrible impressive, but the showers and storms can still produce damaging wind gusts.
- Some of the forecast models are showing the potential for a isolated tornado spin up across central and western Kentucky.
Thursday will be a WKYT Severe Weather Day.
