8:30 pm Saturday Night Storm Update

I thought I’d give everyone a quick update on the storm potential for our Sunday.

Currently, radar shows a complex of thunderstorms, some of which are severe, making their way into northern Kentucky at this hour. Those are expected to weaken as they sink southward. However, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a strong storm or two out of this for you folks along and north of a line from Livingston to Jamestown.


The much greater risk for severe storms will come on Sunday, especially in the afternoon. Another complex of storms is expected to develop overnight and affect Middle TN by Sunday morning. If this complex is quick to move through, our chances for severe storms increases for Sunday. If the complex is slow and keeps our skies cloudy/rainy longer, our chances for severe storms decreases.

As of now, indications are that we’ll be dealing with severe storms in the area Sunday afternoon. Please keep this in mind if you have outdoor plans, as our atmosphere is liable to become very unstable and storms will be capable of becoming severe rather quickly. Some models show isolated storms going severe in a matter of minutes after forming. That certainly seems reasonable, considering the atmosphere we will have in place tomorrow.

All modes of severe weather are possible, including an isolated tornado, but the greater threat will be damaging straight-line winds and hail.

My severe weather concern for Sunday has now increased a bit from this morning’s update.

I’ll be keeping an eye on all of it for you all! Just keep it right here and I’ll keep you informed.

You all have a nice evening. I’ll have a full update in the morning, or as needed.
