Dry this morning, showers and storms by early this evening

  It is a quiet start to our day with temps in the 40s and partly cloudy skies, but some changes to the forecast are not far away. We’ll see showers and a few storms move in by late afternoon and early evening as a warm front lifts northward into Kentuckiana. Rain starts to move in after 3PM beginning south and west of Louisville. The threat for severe weather will remain off to the south, but we could get a few rumbles of thunder. 

    After Tuesday night’s storms, we’ll get a nice break from the wet weather Wednesday and Thursday as high pressure moves in. Mostly cloudy early Wednesday then clouds decrease and we’ll see warm temps and partly cloudy skies through Thursday afternoon. 

    The rain does return Friday and Saturday as a front stalls out near us here in Kentuckaia. Our rain chances Friday will be dependent on how far south the front moves, but we do know a trailing cold front moving through on Saturday will give us a good chance for rain and some thunder by Saturday night. Even with the rain, strong southwest airflow will keep our temps in the 70s through Saturday before the cold front brings us back to the 60s by Sunday.  We’ll end the weekend and start next week dry.
