The line of storms out to our west has continued to strengthen and organize as it has entered far western Kentucky. The SPC has had several reports of wind damage and 1″ inch across portions of northeastern Arkansas and southern Illinois. It would be reasonable to expect similar results for our area. We currently have a bulls-eye of decent LI along with increasing CAPE over the past couple of hours for south central Kentucky. But now that night has descended upon us, any potential for further instability has all but ended. Bottom line: expect some good soaking rains with this line of storms as it passes in a couple hours, along with some decent winds (35+ mph) and perhaps even small hail.
