LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — Make some outdoor plans, it’s going to be a nice day. We’ll have a mix of sun and clouds and near-record-warm temperatures in the low to mid-70s.
It will be another breezy day with wind gusts over 30 MPH at times.
We turn our attention to the south late tonight, likely midnight or after, for storms that will develop ahead of a warm front.
Those storms lift north overnight into early Thursday morning. The main threats will be heavy rain and hail.
A second round of storms develops ahead of a cold front into the afternoon and evening.
These storms will be capable of producing damaging winds, hail, and isolated tornadoes. The Storm Prediction Center has our entire viewing area outlined in a risk for severe storms.
The greatest risk zone at this time appears to be near I-75 and points to the west. There still are some questions about this storm system. The amount of instability available for afternoon/evening storms is uncertain. The more instability, the strong the storms will be.
Here’s an overall breakdown of a stormy Thursday.
