    Isolated to scattered severe storms will be possible again on Friday for portions of southern Indiana and Kentucky. The area for Kentucky is mainly west of I-75. A moist and strongly unstable air mass will be in place over portions of the Ohio Valley. However, early morning thunderstorms may have a large influence on the overall situation. this is leading to moderate forecast uncertainty. Check back for updates later today.

    Probability of Watch Issuance...40 percent SUMMARY...A gradual increase and intensification of thunderstorms could yield at least some increase in risk for potentially damaging wind gusts by 3-5 PM EDT. While it is not yet certain that a severe weather watch will be needed, trends will continue to be monitored for this possibility.

    The tornado threat for this afternoon has indeed increased. As in my earlier update the main area of concern this morning in western Kentucky west of the Land between the Lakes area. With the latest update from the Storm Prediction Center, there is now a threat of tornadoes that extends to around the I-65 corridor. This morning this map was showing zero chance in Kentucky. I'm monitoring this situation closely and will post updates when...

    The Storm Prediction Center has expanded the category 2 Slight Risk Area. It is now west of a line from around Sparta down to Frankfort then down to Columbia. Conditions will develop ahead of an upper trough, with cool midlevel temperatures and increased winds aloft overspreading the region. Daytime heating will yield scattered storms first along the Ohio River then they should start to fire up in western Kentucky. For now, it looks...

    There is a chance of a more organized severe activity on Wednesday. Especially west of I-65 where the Storm Prediction Center has Kentucky in a category 2 Slight Risk Area. Thunderstorm activity should develop by the afternoon. Large hail damaging winds can be expected along with the possibility of a tornado or two. East of the I-65 corridor The rest of Kentucky and southern Ohio is in a category 1 Marginal Risk Area. The following NAM...

    Parts of western Kentucky and southern Indiana are in a Slight Risk Area for strong to severe storms. This area is west/northwest of a line from around Frankfort to Bowling Green. Thunderstorms will develop ahead of a short wave trough Wednesday afternoon. Dewpoints in the upper 60s to low 70s will contribute to the moderate to strong instability. These conditions support organized thunderstorm activity. Primary threats would be damaging...

    Severe probabilities have been increased across portions of southern Indiana. Deep convection is increasing ahead of a short-wave trough over southern Illinois and this activity should spread east along/south of wind shift into southern Indiana and Ohio over the next several hours. The Storm Prediction Center has expanded the category 2 Slight Risk area to include southern Indiana and southern Ohio.

    :thumb: It is simply that there will be very little sun spot activity during the solar minimum. The period usually lasts about 11 years or so. Research has shown that the sun does have an effect on the earth's weather. It is said that a prolonged solar minimum called the Maunder Minimum helped contribute to the mini ice age back in the late 1600s to early 1700s. Now no one is saying that we are heading for a new ice age just that this is...

    The threat level has risen since this morning. The Storm Prediction Center now has most of Kentucky in a category 2 Slight Risk Area for strong to severe storms later today. This area is surrounded by a category 1 Marginal Risk Area. A Slight Risk has been added to parts of the Ohio Valley where a somewhat higher confidence/coverage of sustained severe storms may occur. Multicells capable of wind damage and some hail will be most common,...

    The 6-10 and 8-14 day shows above normal temperatures but also above normal precipitations so it may be July before we see normal summer. I don't know if this has any bearing on our weather but I've been reading about the Grand Solar Minimum that some are saying could affect the weather. This is where there is little to now sunspot activity on the sun. It is supposed to start either this year or next.

    Look for more of the same on Thursday morning showers then a break and heavy showers in the afternoon. Most of the heaviest rain accumulations look to be south of I-64. Some close to the Tennessee border could receive upwards or 2-3 inches just on Thursday alone.

    In the wake of early day activity destabilization will again occur this afternoon. The most unstable air will be farther east. To indicate this the Storm Prediction Center has moved the category 1 Marginal Risk Area eastward. It now covers parts of Kentucky east of I-65. Possible scattered strong to severe storms are expected to develop later this afternoon into the evening hours. The main threats look to be sporadic marginal hail and...

    :lol2: No I didn't even think of that. Just thought I would show what I do my forecasts on. Depending on the severity of the possible weather I may get up around 2-3 am so I can check everything out before I go to work at 7:30. Then post when I can during the day and again in the evenings when I get home from work.

    This is part of the set up I use when doing the weather for BGP. On the left, I'm on twitter sending out warnings. On the right, I check various National Weather Service websites for other information. At the time I was on the NWS-Willmington site. I will also be on my cellphone. I receive texts from the Nation Weather Service InteractiveNWS site which you have to be approved by the National Weather Service to use. The latter is what I can use...

    The Storm Prediction Center has the entire state of Kentucky along with most of Indiana and Ohio in a category 1 Marginal Risk Area for widely scattered severe storms on Monday. Some destabilization is forecast to take place on Monday from southern Illinois into southern Indiana and western Kentucky. Conditions could be favorable for scattered thunderstorms development by midday. Although the deep layer shear is forecast to be marginal...

    The Storm Prediction Center has most of Kentucky in a category 2 Slight Risk Area for late Sunday afternoon into the evening hours. It appears that there will be adequate separation from this mornings thunderstorm complex system and the remnants of a system that will be in the Missouri/Arkansas area this afternoon. Conditions look to be favorable for the formation of several multicell clusters with scattered damaging winds as the primary threat....
