Kevin Harned: Storms to our south could be severe Thursday evening

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The cold front that brought microburst winds up to 70 MPH to part of the WAVE 3 News viewing area has pushed south of Louisville. This will be the focal point for storms this evening.

A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH is in place for southern Kentucky, including Adair County in our viewing area. We're in for a calmer weekend with plenty of sunshine and warming temperatures.

We'll see temperatures increase from near 80 degrees on Friday to possibly the warmest of the season so far, near 90 on Monday. If you are traveling to the Indy 500 on Sunday the weather looks great, with highs in the lower 80s under plenty of sunshine.  

You may want to keep an eye to the sky Friday night for shooting stars (meteor shower) from the Comet Linear. In fact, there is a possibility that up to 100+ meteors per hour will be possible. While they may be faint it still has potential to be a decent display. The peak time should be between 2:30 to  3:30 Saturday morning (Friday night).

FORECAST

TONIGHT: Partly cloudy. Low: 60°

FRIDAY: 
Partly sunny, pleasant. High: 80°

SATURDAY:
Mostly sunny, warmer. High: 83° Low: 58°

SUNDAY: Mostly sunny. High: 87° Low: 60°

MEMORIAL DAY: Partly sunny. High 90° Low: 64°
