Window for strong storm formation today

by

The skies have cleared in Western Kentucky today which may allow for the formation of more storms with some limited instability in place.

I expect the storms over Indiana to develop further south and east later this afternoon this batch of storms with the limited instability may feature a few strong to severe storms with it that have some gusty winds that could reach severe limits and small hail. However I expect the coverage to be more scattered as storms to our south should keep the moisture transport north limited.  Temps will still be seasonably cool today.

– make sure to keep up with the wku class out in the plains as well tracking storms the page is off to the side.
