2 P.M. update
Thursday, March 14, 2019
1). Recent data shows the upper and lower atmosphere are beginning to “uncouple.” That means the “sweet spot” of atmospheric conditions that has spawned the severe weather to our west for the past few hours is beginning to fade.
2). The weakening has enabled the line of storms to slow its eastward progression.
3). New “best estimate” for pushing through Louisville Metro is now 4:30 to 6 P.M.
4). Until then, surface winds will continue to be very gusty – up to around 40-45 mph.
5). When thunderstorms arrive, the primary threat will be strong wind gusts – up to 50 mph or so. Tornado threat has lowered.
