Strong to severe storms possible Wednesday afternoon, evening

It’s a return to active weather this week, with a chance of severe storms on Wednesday and then lingering stormy weather into the weekend.

After a brief weather break to start the week, the chance for severe weather rears its head on Wednesday, with Derrick Snyder with the National Weather Service in Paducah saying storms should start firing Wednesday night and into the evening.

The primary hazard for any storms that develop will be damaging winds, but an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.

After that moves through, there will be daily chances for scattered storms, but nothing severe is in the forecast at the moment.

Some of the storms could also bring heavy rainfall at times, so flooding issues could become a problem in the usual low-lying and poor drainage areas.  Stay tuned to the WHOP Family of Stations for more information on this developing storm system and stay weather aware as you head into the work week.
