A warm and moist airmass moved into the region, with temperatures rising into the mid 80s and dewpoint temperatures riding to around 70.  This combination fortunately allowed for storms to develop over more of the area than originally anticipated.  Storms that developed over Missouri, and brought widespread 60-80 mph winds, steered south of our region because of the storms over Kentucky "stealing" that energy.

That said however, our storms did produce multiple hail reports as well as some tree damage.  A Flash Flood Emergency also was declared over Taylor and Casey counties in Kentucky, where radar estimates of 4-6" of rain fell over a relatively short period of time.
