We’re dealing with two primary issues Thursday as active March weather erupts- a severe storm threat and a very gusty southerly wind. A wind advisory is in effect for 40 to 45 mph gusts, possibly topping 50 mph. The low that’s driving that massive, western blizzard will barrel into the upper Midwest today, pushing a cold front our way. Watch for a round of strong to severe storms Thursday afternoon/evening. Our primary threat is damaging wind but isolated tornadoes and hail will also be in play. Much of central Kentucky has been upgraded to an enhanced risk for severe storms. The storm threat will rapidly diminish overnight as the front races east.
