Mild temps and partly cloudy skies this morning, but we are monitoring some active weather for parts of Kentuckiana by late this evening. Warm and mostly dry this afternoon with highs in the upper 70s and low 80s.
A cold front late tonight will bring storms mainly to areas north and east of Louisville, but some shower/storm activity is possible here in the metro. The biggest threats with this round of storms would be hail and damaging winds. The tornado threat is low.
Now to our second round of storms for the week. Those will arrive with the passing of a secondary cold front very late Wednesday night into Thursday. These storms will be more widespread across our Kentuckiana area. The main threats are similar to Tuesday’s storms which include hail, damaging wind gusts and a low tornado threat.
Once this front moves through we’re in for a much cooler 2nd half of the week with highs only in the upper 50s and low 60s Thursday and Friday. The forecast should stay fairly quiet until late Sunday into Monday when our next system moves in from the south.
