It’s been a super quiet spring severe weather season across Kentucky, but Mother Nature is trying to shake things up over the next few days. A potent setup may fire off rounds of strong to severe storms from this afternoon through Tuesday.

Here’s a breakdown of how things may play out:

  • Rounds of strong to severe storms will threaten the state tonight through Tuesday evening.
  • Damaging winds, large hail and a few tornadoes will be possible in this type of a setup.
  • Any storm out there will also be able to produce tremendous amounts of rain, leading to the potential for another round of local flash flooding.

Showers and storms wind down Tuesday night into Wednesday with cooler and drier air filtering in from the northwest. That’s ahead of a stronger system dropping in by the end of the week.

That has another blast of chill with it, but the models are a little faster in getting it out of here on Mother’s Day Weekend. Unfortunately, that’s likely to set up another very stormy look into much of next week.
