From the National Weather Service in Paducah: A severe thunderstorm warning in effect for portions of Western Kentucky until 9:30 p.m. Winds moving up to 50 miles per hour, capable of producing damaging winds of 60 mph or greater and hail up to 1 inch.
The Quad State will be situated between Low pressure to our west, and High pressure to our east for the next 48 to 72 hours. The result will be partly sunny days/partly cloudy nights, with a chance of showers and thunderstorms. These rain chances will steadily increase as we head into the weekend, as the Low pressure system makes its approach. It will make passage Saturday night into Sunday, and usher in cooler and drier air for early next week as it departs to the east.
