SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE STORMS FOR ENTIRE WBKO VIEWING AREA LATE THURSDAY INTO THURSDAY NIGHT

EARLY MORNING NOWCAST:
Showers and thunderstorms will move out of the viewing area followed by clearing west to east.
6am: Clearing 51°
8am: Mostly Sunny 50°
10am: Mostly Sunny 52°

STORMS END, SUN RETURNS:
It’s been a while but many of us were awakened by the sound of thunder early this morning. A weak disturbance moved through bringing some Spring-like thunderstorms which are now moving away. We’ll dry out this morning with a mix of sun and clouds expected today. We stay warm, with highs near 60.

STRONG STORMS THURSDAY:
Our next system arrives Thursday, and it looks quite potent. It will be packing plenty of wind/jet stream energy along with abundant moisture. Multiple rounds of showers and thunderstorms are likely with this system. The first round is expected early in the day, with the second (and stronger) round coming late in the day. At this time, it appears an organized line of storms will march through the entire area between 3pm-9pm Thursday. Some storms within that line may be capable of producing locally damaging winds, with isolated tornadoes and hail also possible. It will be a very windy, warm day, with near record high temperatures in the low to mid 70s before the cold front arrives in the evening. Stay connected to WBKO and wbko.com as we track this powerful system.

QUIETING DOWN:
We dry out Friday, with temperatures remaining mild through the early part of the weekend. By early next week, colder readings make a comeback, with a chance for rain or snow showing up Tuesday.

TODAY:
Partly Sunny, Continued Warm… High 61, winds SE-6

TONIGHT:
Cloudy & Breezy, Thunderstorms After Midnight…Low 48, winds S-13
Precip Chance: 30% – Amount: 0.10″

THURSDAY:
AM Storms, then Breezy with Strong Late Day Storms…High 75, S-24
Precip Chance: 80% – Amount: 0.50″
