  1. Thunderstorms are expected today, and a few storms could become strong or severe, with locally damaging winds and hail possible. Briefly torrential rainfall could result in localized flooding, especially in areas that received heavy rain overnight. The Storm Prediction Center has issued a level 1 Marginal Risk Area for most of Kentucky for Sunday. It is possible an upgrade in the severe weather threat may be required later today. As of this morning the timing for these possible storms is from 2 pm - 8 pm EDT. The Following maps cover the 2-10 pm EDT time period. I will update later this morning.
  2. Look for more storms between the 2-5 am EDT time period. This appears to be east of i-65 and north of I-64.
  3. The correct time for the radar simulation is 3 am to 9 am EDT Sunday morning.
  4. Portions of Kentucky could be in for a stormy period later this afternoon into early Sunday morning. This afternoon portions of western Kentucky could see strong to severe storms. The Storm Prediction Center has issued a level 2 Slight Risk Area for that portion of the state. A level 1 Marginal Risk Area is in effect to about I-65. For western Kentucky: Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are expected, starting later today and continuing into tonight. Conditions will be favorable for a few strong to severe thunderstorms containing large hail and damaging wind. For central Kentucky: A few strong thunderstorms will be possible tonight, with the main threats being hail, locally gusty winds and brief heavy rainfall. The following HRRR radar is from 3 pm this afternoon till 9 am EDT Sunday morning. For Sunday: A few strong severe will be possible on Sunday. For now the main threat will be locally gusty winds and brief torrential rainfall, along with frequent lightning. The Storm Prediction Center has all of Kentucky under a level 1 Marginal Risk Area on Sunday.
  5. 348 AM EDT Thu Jul 9 2020 ...HEAT ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM NOON TODAY TO 8 PM EDT THIS EVENING... * WHAT...Heat index values up to 100 expected. * WHERE...Portions of East Central and Southeast Indiana, Northeast and Northern Kentucky and Central, South Central, Southwest and West Central Ohio. * WHEN...From noon today to 8 PM EDT this evening. * IMPACTS...Hot temperatures and high humidity may cause heat illnesses to occur. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors. Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances. Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When possible reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing when possible. To reduce risk during outdoor work, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an emergency! Call 9 1 1.
  6. HEAT INDICES 95-100° From the National Weather Service-Wilmington, OH office. The combination of temperatures in the mid 90s and high relative humidity values will result in heat indices in the 95-100 degree range this afternoon. Continued hot and humid conditions are expected through the rest of the week as well. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and take frequent breaks if engaging in outdoor activities.
  7. Just looked at the possible heat index through next weekend. If these numbers hold true western Kentucky will be like an oven for a few days. Then the possible triple digit heat indices will move west of I-65 starting on Sunday. Those west of I-65 could see a heat index around 115 degrees Saturday afternoon. There is a possibility of some showers east of I-65 that could hold the temps down on Saturday. They will stay in the range on Sunday but the triple digits will move eastward. Monday looks to be possibly the worst day for everyone so far. That afternoon heat index for Monday afternoon look to range from around 105-115 for most of the state. If these numbers hold up I look for a heat watch to be issued by the end of the upcoming work week.
  8. Here's the Friday evening update for next weekend's heat hazardous risk. This now appears to be extended till the 17th of July. These are new maps that I will be using in the future for all weather related posts.
  9. Thank you but that doesn't help me with my problem. I understood all of that. All of my old avatars are too big. I've minimized them down to 100 pixels and they are cropped even if I make the crop tool as large as it can be made.
  10. I don't know if this has been asked or not but what are the dimensions for profile photos.
  11. This shows the possible heat index for Monday July 13. Next is the Climate Prediction Center's probable excessive heat outlook 8-14 days out.
  12. This is actually for next weekend.
  13. We could see widespread triple digit heat indices by Sunday 7/12/2020.
  14. Kentucky may be looking at its first heat wave of the summer next week. The Climate Prediction Center's 8-14 day temperature outlook is showing Kentucky may see some temps above 90 degrees July 9-12. The GFS model is showing this well. The same period there is not much rain expected. I will post updates as we get closer.
  15. A line of showers an storms is approaching portions of western Kentucky at this time. Rain could be heavy at times with localized pounding of water on roads. There is also a slight possibility of some small hail within the stronger storms. The following HRRR radar is from 3 to 8 pm CDT.
