    Sunday morning Update 3/18/2018

    It appears that the severe weather threat has increased some. The Storm Prediction Center has placed most of Kentucky in a category 1 Marginal Risk Area for strong to severe storms Tuesday afternoon into the evening hours. If the modeling data continues to show this increase I fully expect the severe threat level to be increased. At this moment the threats appear to be damaging winds, hail and a tornado or two. As for timing between 2-11 pm EDT.

    Here are some maps to show what I've been seeing.

    Reed Timmer (tornado chaser) says he’ll be focusing on Western KY up the river through SW Ohio for the potential for tornadoes Tuesday.

    That's awesome. I was hoping for more rain! The mud isn't up to my knees yet.

    I'm working on my outlook right now. If I lived west of I-65 I would keep an eye on the weather Tuesday afternoon.

    As of now look for scattered showers Tuesday afternoon in the Lexington area. The severe weather looks to be in the Lexington area between 9-11 pm EDT. I'll be watching it closely.

    Sunday evening update

    Strong to severe storms will be possible for most of Kentucky Tuesday afternoon into the evening hours. I fully expect that the Storm Prediction Center will upgrade the threat level Monday morning. The severe storms look to enter WKY around 5 pm EDT. They will transverse across the state and start to weaken as the night goes on. The greatest threat looks to be from 5-8 pm EDT. That is when the atmosphere looks to be the most conducive to the formation of supercell storms that could produce a tornado or two. For now, my main area of concern is from Owensboro to about the I-65 corridor. The main threats look to be damaging winds hail and a tornado or two. Some of which could be strong. Especially in the area from around Owensboro to Bowling Green then up to Louisville. Here are some maps for everyone to look over. I will definitely update everyone in the morning before I leave for work.

    Everyone can see that the time period of 5-8 pm EDT could be quite eventful. That is when most tornadic activity occurs in Kentucky.

    If this threat level continues or is increased I will go into a severe weather threat mode.

    I'm going to go ahead and issue a Severe Weather Alert Day for Tuesday afternoon into the evening hours. The threat seems to have increased since this morning. I'll be starting a new thread.
