It was a busy afternoon across Kentucky, after several tornadic storms for the morning and midday in western and central Kentucky, storms remained strong in southern Kentucky for the afternoon. The storms fired along a cold front, that is now pushing through eastern Kentucky. For the evening a few storms will remain possible, but the severe threat has greatly been reduced. Any evening storms will have gusty winds and local downpours, but they should be short-lived as activity continues to move east. Behind any evening storms, the clouds will exit and temperatures will cool into the mid 40s for the overnight.
An enjoyable, dry and warm day is expected on Thursday. We'll peak near 60 mph with mostly sunny skies. But the quiet weather won't last for long. Another round of storms, possibly strong or severe, are expected on Friday. At this point it looks like Friday evening and night will be our best chance for more storms. Behind this next cold front temperatures will be cooler, in the 40s, this weekend.
