Locally heavy downpours the next few days
Strong wind gust potential, especially Friday
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Another warm/muggy start to the day that will end up a bit different than previous days.
We have several “triggers” in the region to kick off thunderstorms as we heat things up this morning. While scattered, these downpours could really put down some heavy rain and brief wind gusts. Highs will still manage to reach around 90 degrees so the heat index will be able to climb into the mid 90s at times before the radar lights up.
Coverage of rain/thunder is expected to increase on Thursday which will keep temperatures down in a big way, but still very much a “humid” feel to the air.
A low pressure will spin through the area on Friday that may help promote some organized wind gusts if thunderstorms can develop. I have issued an Alert Day for Friday PM as a ‘heads up’ regarding this potential in addition to the flash flooding risk.
We will fine-tune that risk as we gather more data.
Hazy, hot and humid
Scattered thunderstorms develop (40%)
T-storms possible (20%)
Cloudy and humid
Widespread showers and thunderstorms (70%)
