Updated Thursday Evening, October 14, 2021

Severe storms possible this evening/overnight

Storms are ramping up late this afternoon as a cold front approaches the area. A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for mainly the Purchase area of Western KY, but others could be added as the evening progresses. Stay weather aware! The main threat is damaging winds, but an isolated tornado and/or large hail cannot be ruled out.

This frontal boundary will exit the area by tomorrow morning, leaving behind a dry weekend ahead. Saying that, temperatures will take an abrupt downward trend with highs limited to the 60s for both Saturday and Sunday. Some in the upper 50s. Sunday morning lows will likely dip into the low to middle 40s for most, but cannot rule out some low lying and sheltered locations making it into the upper 30s. Suppose a patchy frost cannot be ruled out for these locations.

Looking farther out, our next shot of rain looks to hold off until midweek.
