Saturday Severe Weather Threat for Western KY, Southwestern IN
I don't know about you, but I have grown weary of severe weather. After the skies got darker than I have ever seen them during the daytime this Thursday, and after hail the size of golf balls littered our front yard Sunday, I'm done.
Except...I'm NOT done. And neither are many of you, unfortunately. Mother Nature pays no mind to our severe weather fatigue as evidenced by what forecasters are saying we can expect tomorrow.
The National Weather Service has placed western Kentucky and southwestern Indiana under an Enhanced-Level 3 risk for severe weather Saturday. That's the same level we were all under Thursday, and we all know know what that was like.
According to NWS-Paducah, the primary hazards associated with storms expected to roll through western Kentucky and southwestern Indiana on Saturday will be damaging wind gusts, large hail, and isolated flash flooding.
I've seen so many leaves and limbs strewn all over the place that I wondered if the trees had any left to give. I guess we'll see tomorrow. Also, I wonder if I'll be capture what I captured this weekend. (Uh, I don't want to, just so you'll know.)
And then there's this...it's entirely possible we won't be finished by Saturday's end. The National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center has placed very nearly ALL of Kentucky and southern Indiana under a Slight-Level 2 risk for severe weather Sunday. And at this time, damaging winds seem to be the primary threat when we close out the weekend. Of course, that has time to change.
We will keep you posted with any necessary updates.
