Apr 19, 11, 07:00 AM #18Here are the updated probability maps for today until tomorrow.
Apr 19, 11, 07:52 AM #19The lightning and thunder was relentless last night. Had our bedroom windows open and at about 1 am there must have been burst of lightning right outside our window. It got the adrenaline rushing and after that there wasn't much sleeping because it didn't stop until about 4:30 this morning. Also had some dime to nickel sized hail at about 2:30 this morning.

Apr 19, 11, 09:52 AM #21Hey nWo - not sure if information like this is tracked from year to year or is even trackable at all, but this seems like one of the windiest March-April periods in NKY that I can recall in awhile. You're always going to have some windy days around here this time of year, but it's by and large every single day. Quite a few days the wind has been just crazy. I am just imagining this or is it true?
Apr 19, 11, 10:57 AM #22I think you are correct. I know it has been one of the wettest periods on record for the area around Lexington.
Apr 19, 11, 12:58 PM #23Here is the latest Severe Weather Outlook for later today.
...WIDESPREAD SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS EXPECTED OVER PARTS OF THE OZARKS...THE LOWER AND MIDDLE MISSISSIPPI VALLEYS...AND THE LOWER OHIO VALLEY LATER TODAY THROUGH TONIGHT... THE NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER IN NORMAN OK IS FORECASTING THE DEVELOPMENT OF TORNADOES...DAMAGING WINDS...AND LARGE HAIL FROM THE OZARKS INTO PARTS OF MISSISSIPPI AND LOWER OHIO VALLEYS THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH TONIGHT.
This includes Western and Northern Kentucky. The rest of Kentucky should be on the lookout during the overnight hours.
Apr 19, 11, 01:04 PM #24Just checked the TOR:CON scale from The Weather Channel. Western Kentucky and Northern Kentucky are a 6. The rest of Kentucky is a 4. This is in a 50 mile radius.
What is the TOR:CON Index?
TOR:CON Value Descriptions
8: High probability of a tornado
6: Moderate possibility of a tornado
4: Low chance of a tornado nearby, but hail and/or strong wind gusts possible
2: Very low chance of a tornado, but hail and/or strong wind gusts possible
0: Near-zero chance of a tornado or a severe thunderstorm
Apr 19, 11, 01:25 PM #25This is better than the weather channel.
Apr 19, 11, 01:43 PM #26We got some serious precip. up this way in the last 12 hours or so. Check out the picture of this house located on Old KY 17 (not too far from Scott and Simon Kenton high schools):
The family woke up this morning and their house was completely surrounded by water. Talk about an "oh crap" moment...
Apr 19, 11, 01:44 PM #27...and here's the rescue team headed to get them out.
