Severe Thunderstorm Watch issued for Estill, Lee, Harlan, Laurel, McCreary, Powell, Bath, Breathitt, Knox, Menifee, Owsley, Pulaski, Whitley, Bell, Clay, Leslie, Perry, Rockcastle, Wayne, and Wolfe Counties until 11 p.m. Thunderstorms developing in the Bluegrass will push southeast into these areas late this afternoon and could become strong to severe with damaging wind gusts, quarter size hail, and frequent lightning as the main threats
Once tonight's storms end we will see some dense fog develop for the Thursday morning commute as temperatures drop back into the upper 60s. More thunderstorms are possible during the afternoon on Thursday, and with the heavy rain potential of them we may have more high water problems.
Storm chances should drop a bit as we head into the weekend and the core of the heat scoots closer to Eastern Kentucky. Highs will be near 90 Friday through early next week.
