Nice for midweek

Rain takes a break
Posted at 3:31 PM, Mar 03, 2020

After the rain and storms early this morning, things are shaping up for a nice end to the day. The sun has come back out and is keeping things mild in the 50s for most locations. A few leftover isolated showers are still popping on the MaxTrack, but we have already seen the bulk of this storm pass us. Wind remains strong out of the west with gusts between 25 and 35 mph.

We started Tuesday with strong thunderstorms passing mostly to our south, but also bringing heavy rain and strong wind gusts to every region in Central and Eastern Kentucky. One cell produced a tornado in Warren County near the community of Alvaton southeast of Bowling Green. The NWS is still conducting surveys to label the strength of the tornado, but preliminary reports show it as an EF-2. Elsewhere, we had some hail reports and a wind damage report in Wayne County from the early morning thunderstorms. Now, we see the sunshine as temperatures remain mild. We’ll have a calm day Wednesday with another dose of sunshine and mild temperatures. A small trough and clipper will slide in for the end of the week bringing a small chance for rain and even snow showers. Most locations will stay dry, but if you see a few drops or flakes between Thursday night and Friday, don’t be alarmed. No accumulating snow is expected. Temperatures will cool for Friday before rebounding through a nice weekend ahead.
