Active Severe Weather Pattern in the Region

Jun 26, 2019

We've just concluded a very active severe weather pattern in the region.

The National Weather Service in Paducah says in its 58-county coverage area from June 16-23, there were 115 combined tornado, severe thunderstorm and flash flood warnings. That compares with 159 total severe weather warnings from October 1st to June 15th.

Forecasters say that means 42% of their warnings over the past nine months occurred in that week long period.

The heat and humidity in the forecast for the next several days will provide more opportunities for severe weather in the region.
