Severe Thunderstorm Watch (WKY) canceled

Recommended Posts

Severe thunderstorms capable of damaging winds and hail are expected today from the Ozarks eastward across western Kentucky and northwest Tennessee. Other strong to severe storms are possible farther east in Kentucky.

 

A fast-moving bow echo has developed across southern MO. This cluster of storms has produced many reports of damaging winds and hail this morning, and is tracking into a region where strong heating and substantial low-level moisture is present. This should help to maintain intensity through the day as storms track into parts of KY/TN.

 

Most model guidance shows scattered afternoon convection forming along the surface boundary from central KY into northern WV as the upper trough approaches. This activity is likely to be less organized than the bowing structure farther west, due to weaker instability and rather weak low-level winds. Nevertheless, a few of the storms may pose a risk of locally damaging wind gusts and hail through the late afternoon and evening hours.

 

Here is the HRRR Radar from 3-11 pm EDT
