    Earliest Alert 5.25.18

    Friday, May 25 2018 8:28 AM EDT2018-05-25 12:28:27 GMT

    Welcome to the holiday weekend! As we plan out the outdoor events and memorials...the headlines for the weekend remain the same. Humid, hot and the risk for very heavy downpours. The good news is that we are getting better data this morning that is helping us to group the rain chances during the weekend setup.  One trend that was becoming apparently was the increase in thunderstorm coverage Saturday.  Still not a washout setup, but there radar will have moments where it is...

    StormTALK 5.24.18

    Thursday, May 24 2018 3:28 PM EDT2018-05-24 19:28:30 GMT

    Main focus today will be the tropical nature of our pattern over the next 7-10 days. And that may include more than one tropical system on the map. The first one is 90-L that is now located near the Yucatan.  It will drift north into the Gulf of Mexico and likely to gain Tropical Depression status by Saturday.  There is time for it to become a Tropical Storm before moving over land Sunday or Monday near I-65 along the coast.   The moisture from this potential sto...

    Do you feel the difference yet?  Most of you do with the north/east wind and drier air working in.  The exception is closer to the TN border where there front is still nearby and therefore higher moisture levels.   We will all benefit from the dry air and clear skies tonight to allow for lows in the 60s and even several mid/upper 50s overnight!  Normal low for Louisville is 59°, so you can tell we have been unusually warm/humid to get excited about being ...More >>

    Hopefully those that were missed on the rainfall Monday night...were caught up this morning. The downpours will continue across KY through the afternoon with new development taking place across Indiana later on.  The morning rain did take out some of the moisture in advance of the front, but still expecting a broken line(s) of thunderstorms to move north to south through sunset. Then get ready for some NICE weather!  You should notice a decrease in the humidity Wednesday b...

    While we are heading into the end of Meteorological Spring over the next 10 days, summer weather has been here since just after Derby and is in no hurry to leave. We do at least have a somewhat stronger front pushing in to drive moisture levels down juuuuuuust enough to remove the rain chance for a few days.   Of course that also means we have thunderstorms to get threat before we can enjoy that benefit. The first round should develop in the max heating of the day this aft...

    Has the rain missed you so far? Maybe today will be your day.  I know it took until yesterday for my house to finally get some rainfall.   Of course, we don't want too much of a good thing.  The risk for flash flooding will remain with such a high water content in the air right now. The storm/rain motion today will be from the south/southeast to the north/northwest.  Keep that in mind when you check the radar on the WAVE 3 Weather App. The low will be mainly...

    Earliest Alert- Thursday

    Thursday, May 17 2018 7:53 AM EDT2018-05-17 11:53:36 GMT

    More heavy downpours to track later today. With the moisture content so high and the wind flow aloft weak, rainfall amounts have been impressive.  Over 2-3" can fall depending on how that particular storm cell behaves/lasts.   Expect a repeat of that today. There is a difference in the setup later, however. Which a low pressure moving in from the south, the amount of "lift" will be present into the nighttime hours.  This means the development of do...

    The front we have been tracking all week to our north has now settled into WAVE Country.  Expect scattered showers and thunderstorms to develop/fade/re-develop over the next 12 hours.  We should see a calmer setup overnight with some fog. Rain totals could be impressive for some with localized 1-2" amounts.  There will be some of you that won't see a drop.  Hopefully your thirsty lawn will get picked. Once we move into Thursday and Friday, the front basicall...
