    Severe Weather Outlook for Saturday 2/24/18

    There is a possibility of strong to severe storms on Saturday. Especially for WKY. For now, the timing looks to be early evening into Saturday night. The Storm Prediction Center already has parts of WKY with a chance for severe weather. Thunderstorms will be possible for other parts of Kentucky later Saturday evening.

    Update 2/22/18

    The severe threat for Saturday has grown. The Storm Prediction Center has most of western Kentucky and parts of southcentral Kentucky in a Slight Risk Area for strong to severe storms Saturday afternoon into the evening hours. From about I-65 to I-75 is a Marginal Risk Area.

    Sorry, I don't have more time to go in depth. I will update later today.

    Thursday night update

    Just a quick update. I've been going over the latest model runs and it seems that the potential for severe weather late Saturday afternoon into the evening hours is growing. The potential for bowing segments and a few embedded supercell storms that could produce damaging winds and a few tornadoes are there. I will update in the morning.
