FORECAST: Rain chance returns by Wednesday morning

Thursday 8/16
Strong thunderstorms and heavy rain potential parts of Wednesday and Thursday

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - We are on track for a very warm afternoon into the upper 80s with Louisville briefly able to touch 90 degrees later.  

WAVE Country looks to stay dry through about 3 a.m. After that, a warm front will increase moisture in the area to provide for scattered showers and downpours. Some of the rain could be locally heavy with the timing certainly needing to be watched with school returning to session. The rain will be clusters allowing for timing and location challenges. Expect more scattered thunderstorms in the afternoon. 

The rain coverage should ramp up Wednesday night into early Thursday. Some of that rain could be locally heavy and again near the morning rush period. If we can acquire enough heating Thursday midday, the afternoon may feature some stronger thunderstorms. 

For all of the potential impacts from morning to afternoon, an Alert Day is out to bring awareness to these potential impacts. Stay close for forecast updates.
