We are tracking more thunderstorms today. Activity shouldn’t be as strong as what we saw yesterday so the LEX 18 StormTracker Severe Threat Index will remain at a zero. However, today’s storms may still produce gusty winds and torrential rain. Storms will be scattered to more numerous, especially across southern Kentucky, through the first half of the day. Eventually storms will end area-wide after sundown.
Flooding will be a concern today. The Flash Flood Watch has been extended through this evening. After a few days of excessive rainfall it won’t take much rain for flooding to occur in a number of spots. Strong storms may also produce gusty winds. Given the saturated ground, gusty winds may down some trees.
The pattern flips starting tomorrow. We are tracking limited storm chances along with rising heat and humidity. More details on an upcoming heat wave are in the 8-Day Forecast on the Weather page.
