MM’s Tues Wx Forecast for July 5

Wx Summary

A bit of an active weather pattern continues for our region. A complex of storms will move through Kentucky today, with that line possibly extending into northern Fentress County. Those storms would pose a severe risk, if they occur. By Wednesday, all of us are at risk for a strong or severe thunderstorm from a complex of storms dropping south. Those types of events are challenging to forecast, so stay tuned for updates. The rest of the week features scattered showers and thunderstorms with the approach of yet another slow-moving cold front.
