First Alert Weather Forecast

As the afternoon and evening continue we'll begin tracking rounds of showers and thunderstorms. Many of these could feature very strong characteristics after the development stage.

It could be a very rocky evening across parts of Kentucky. A system will be working across the area as we head into the night. This could mean we'll track rounds of showers and thunderstorms. The thunderstorms that we begin tracking could bring severe weather elements.

Here's a basic rundown on what I am thinking.

-Thunderstorms will likely develop between 5pm-8pm.
-Initial thunderstorms will be scattered.
-As more storms pop-up we'll begin to see a few of those getting stronger or reaching severe levels.
-These thunderstorms could be off to themselves and have a better chance to become rotating thunderstorms.
-Rounds of heavy rain, damaging winds, large hail and even a possible tornado could develop in Kentucky.
-A more widespread push of thunderstorms will move into the area later tonight.
-Again, we'll have those same strong to severe elements to deal with.
-Once this final round of the night passes through our area, we will be able to call off our First Alert Severe Weather Day.

Sunday's forecast will only include some of the lingering showers. Most of those will never make it past the morning hours. You will likely see more sunshine around later in the day.
