Shortly after 10 a.m. the record high for Louisville was tied when the temperature reached 69 degrees. This is a very active weather day with potential flooding from heavy rains, gusty winds up to 40+mph, strong/severe storms possible that could produce damaging winds, and a record high of 71. Hard to believe this is January.
Winds have been gusting to 35-40 mph and that will continue.
Rain begins to taper off tonight as the cold front moves east. Behind the front temperatures drop into the upper 30s overnight and top out tomorrow in the upper 40s, so temperatures remain a few degrees above average. The new week starts dry with highs in the mid 50s.
