First Alert Weather Forecast

Sunshine will be back again for Wednesday. We'll likely see temperatures jump back into the mid and upper 60s. This is a little "cooler" when compared to Tuesday, but it really isn't bad at all.

A moisture starved frontal boundary crossed the commonwealth late Tuesday night and early this morning. No one experienced any showers or thunderstorms with that passage. What they did see was a more dominant chill in the air on Wednesday morning. We'll still feel some of the cooler aspects of this front on Wednesday. Basically, highs will not be quite as warm as they were on Tuesday. It's only by a few degrees though.

The next big player will roll into Kentucky on Thursday. First, a warm front will move across Kentucky. It will bring a big push of warmth into the area. Most areas will see highs in the 70-75 degree range. This will contribute to some instability in the atmosphere. Second, a few isolated thunderstorms will develop early in the day. There's an isolated chance one or two of these could be strong or even severe. better chances of that happening will come on Friday. Lastly, a big cool down will force its way in here for Saturday.

After reviewing some of the storm parameters for Friday, it looks like the biggest threat for us will be strong winds. I won't underestimate large hail though, this time of year we can easily see some larger hail in our area. The set-up in the atmosphere makes it a little easier to get in on more hail producing thunderstorms.

As always... we'll be tracking all of the changes.
