Storms still expected to develop this afternoon

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A complicated setup this afternoon as we have several triggers “waiting” to be set off for showers and storms. With sunshine now building back into the area, we will start to build the instability over the region. 

Latest model trends suggest storms will start to develop as early as 2 p.m. along the Ohio River. The storms look to become better organized as they sink southward from an Elizabethtown/Bardstown to Lexington line. That area of the state looks most at risk for severe wind potential later this afternoon and evening.

While storms may take place further north along and north of the Ohio River, the greatest risk will be south. Dry air will move in tomorrow and calm things down for a few days.
