Potent weather system headed our way

Mike Keltner, Director of Adair County Emergency Management, sends word of a potent weather system that will affect South Central Kentucky Thursday night into Friday.

Showers and thunderstorms are expected across the outlook area on Thursday evening. Heavy rainfall will be the primary weather hazard overnight.

For Friday, the National Weather Service in Louisville, KY, has issued a High Wind Warning for an area that includes Adair and all surrounding counties. Strong gusty winds, strong to severe thunderstorms, and heavy rainfall are expected as this storm system pushes through the area.

The main severe weather threats on Friday will be damaging winds and isolated tornadoes. However, repeating rounds of heavy showers and storms may also result in flooding issues, and gusty winds are expected outside of storms.
