A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for central and southern Kentucky until 10 PM.

A Tornado Watch is in effect for Henry, Owen, Grant, Pendleton, Bracken, Robertson, Mason and Lewis Counties until 10 PM. 

Scattered thunderstorms are developing in the warm, humid air as a slow-moving front gradually drifts north across the Bluegrass Region.  Some of the storms will produce lots of lightning and heavy rain, as well as potentially damaging winds and large hail.  Highs will be near 79 degrees today.  While much of the afternoon will be dry in any one location, some of the late-day storms will be severe.  A few spotty showers and thunderstorms will linger tonight, and patchy fog will return late at night.  Lows will remain well above average, bottoming out around 63 degrees.  Temperatures will rise even higher through midweek, as readings soar into the middle to upper 80s!  Isolated thunderstorms will still be possible on Wednesday and Thursday, but they will cover less ground, as a ridge of high pressure builds in from the west and southwest.  Scattered thunderstorms will increase once again at the end of the week and into the weekend, as a front draws near from the north, once again.
