Warming Up!

Good Afternoon!

What a beautiful day it was across the region this afternoon with abundant sunshine making its way into the region giving us the warmest day of the year that we have seen so far! High temperatures around the region warmed well into the upper 70s and low 80s, with some places stretching into the mid 80s!

Tomorrow looks to bring much of the same across the region as the sunshine will continue to be the dominant story in southern Kentucky. Tomorrow does look to be the warmest day of the year so far across the region with high temperatures in the low 80s and some places may even stretch into the mid 80s.

Our rain chances will be on the increase into your Saturday as our next weather maker will make its way into the region late into the afternoon hours. In fact the Storm Prediction Center has a the entire region in a marginal (1/5) risk for severe thunderstorms on Saturday. The main threats that we could see with this system would be damaging winds and large hail potential. As with any system that we see this time of year heavy rainfall could cause flooding, especially given how much rainfall we have been receiving.

We will keep you posted and will have the latest up to the date information about this threat as we go through the next 24 hours.
