  • Quiet and cloudy tonight
  • Most of Tuesday is dry, warm, and windy - Gusts over 50 mph possible late
  • Strong to severe storm potential late Tuesday night, crashing temperatures Wednesday morning

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - While skies will try to clear late tonight, additional high clouds moving in from the southwest will thwart that effort. Lows will only drop into the 40s thanks to the clouds.

Much of Tuesday is dry with gusty winds and highs in the 60s. Wind gusts will top 50 mph in some cases during the evening as thunderstorms move in.

Clusters of thunderstorms moving in Tuesday night will have the potential to put down damaging winds and small hail. A small, isolated tornado threat cannot be ruled out. The timeframe for these threats will be 12AM to 6AM early Wednesday morning.

Rain will exit early Wednesday morning as the cold front moves through, but temperatures will crash into the 30s and 40s as that happens.

Most of Wednesday looks cold and windy with sunshine becoming more prominent during the day.

Thursday is another quiet and cold day with sunshine and highs generally in the 30s. We’ll moderate back into the 50s by Friday but shower chances arrive in time for the weekend.
