The last of the storms from yesterday are finally moving out. It was a long day with severe storms causing wind, hail, lightning, and even flood damage. Now, other than a few light showers, Kentucky is quiet. Temperatures are mild and wind out of the south is running light. The StormTracker Severe Threat Index is back at a level ZERO.

The calm this morning will help people get a start on the cleanup. Clouds hang around through the day, but you may see a little sunshine this morning. By the afternoon, the spinning upper-level low will slide north and wrap in more activity. Scattered showers and storms are expected again today as we move into the afternoon and evening. The storms are not expected to bring a widespread severe event today (like the storms of yesterday), but there can still be strong to severe this afternoon/evening. Cells could produce damaging wind, hail, and abundant lightning. Use caution and head indoors immediately.
