A Stormy Sunday!
We continue to monitor a deep area of low pressure and accompanied cold front across the plains. Between that storm and a departing high pressure system over the southeast, a rather tight pressure gradient is developing. This will help to spread strong southerly winds our way as we head into your Sunday!
In addition, there is the possibility of severe storms here by late tomorrow with the possibility of damaging winds.
Here's a look at the highlights of what looks to be a stormy and unsettled Sunday.
Winds will gust all day and we could see peak wind gusts upwards of 40 mph!
Although we'll see a chance of showers developing fairly early during the day, the possibility of strong storms looks to hold off until late afternoon at the earliest.
Here's a look at how the latest run of the AdvanceTrak is timing it out...
Showers arrive across our western counties by late morning.
Scattered showers reach the metro area by mid afternoon.
A broken line of storms begins fires up over our western counties late afternoon. THESE COULD BE SEVERE!
These storms reach metro Louisville between 6 and 7 pm.
Storms diminish as they drop southeast during the evening hours.
As mentioned, it appears that by far wind will be the main threat. The risk of any tornadic activity appears to be minimum.
Keep in mind, the timing of this system will likely change some between now and tomorrow so be sure to check back in.
