Tornadoes, damaging winds, and large hail are all in the forecast for today, according to the National Weather Service.
A strong low pressure system over Missouri will continue to develop and move towards Ohio. This is currently pushing a warm front across the region, bringing with it widespread showers and thunderstorms throughout Central Kentucky. These storms will produce large hail, heavy rainfall and lightning through the afternoon.
Then the cold front will approach our area from the west. Strong to severe thunderstorms are expected around 2-4 pm. The storms will produce large hail, damaging winds and some tornadoes. These storms will continue to the east, reaching the bluegrass region of Kentucky most likely after 4-5 pm.
It cannot be stressed enough that there is a significant threat for severe thunderstorms and tornadoes this afternoon and evening.
Please stay aware of the current situation, since any thunderstorms this afternoon could pose a significant threat to life and property.
