Brian Goode updates the Wednesday severe weather threat

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The setup for severe storms this afternoon and evening remains complicated. The next few hours will determine how this will all play out.  

Overall thoughts are that the rain across Indiana will continue to push east and shrink in size and coverage through 1 p.m. At that point, clouds are expected to thin enough to produce some heating across southern Indiana and Kentucky.  

Latest trends are for the next round of storms to begin to pop on the radar around 4 p.m. along I-64. They will then collide and form into a line across Kentucky as they push to the south and southeast during the evening. The initial storms that develop do pose a hail and small tornado threat. Once they get better organized across central Kentucky straight-line winds will become the main concern.   

We will keep an eye on this as this will be an hour-by-hour tracking event. The storms should be out of our viewing area by midnight.  

This afternoon: Showers fading with some sunshine developing. New thunderstorms develop by mid afternoon.
High: 87

This evening: Thunderstorms, mainly across Kentucky, some with damaging winds.

Overnight: Turning a bit cooler and less humid.
Low: 60

Thursday: Becoming sunny.
High: near 80
