Severe Weather Possible This Week

It appears conditions could be coming together for potentially our first round of severe weather this spring. According to information from the National Weather Service in Paducah, scattered to numerous thunderstorms will be possible Wednesday into early Thursday, with some of those storms possibly reaching severe levels, especially later Wednesday night into early Thursday. The Storm Prediction Center continues to indicate a slight risk of severe thunderstorms for Wednesday night. Large hail and heavy rain seem to be the main threats from any storms that develop.

Additionally, confidence is growing for severe thunderstorm development later Thursday and especially Thursday night, in advance of an eastward progressing cold front. Forecasters say the dynamics and instability of this system appear at a magnitude capable of producing widespread severe weather. As a result, the Storm Prediction center has placed the region under a slight risk of severe thunderstorms for Thursday and Thursday night. In addition to the severe weather threat, heavy rainfall is also a possibility Wednesday night through Thursday night.
