Squall line moving east

by

– The SPC has upgraded most regions across southeast KY to a moderate risk for severe storms

– this line should strengthen throughout the day

– Reports of hail, gusty winds and a tornado in madisonville have already been recived by the NWS

– The storms just east of madisonville still have week rotation

– ANY storm can produce a tornado quick as helicity values in some areas are over 700 m/s^2

– Gusty winds just east of the Louisville metro now.

– I have concerns this will be a long day for southeast KY with widespread wind damage a few hail reports and a few tornadoes as well.
