LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Showers increase overnight with rain likely before sunrise and lingering into the morning commute.

While this activity may slow traffic down it will not be severe early in the day. After morning showers fizzle we’ll see some dry time into the afternoon. It will be a breezy and warm day with highs in the upper 60s.

Friday is an ALERT DAY with evening thunderstorms expected to arrive from the west. Some may stay strong/severe.

The main threat of any severe weather would be during the evening and early overnight hours as the front approaches.

The wind field will allow damaging winds and isolated tornadoes to be the main concerns. While the rain is mostly gone on Saturday, the wind will really get your attention.

Gusts up to 50 MPH are possible mid morning through early afternoon, decreasing as we head toward evening. Highs on Saturday will be near 50 early in the day.

Sunday is easily the pick of the weekend with sunshine and highs in the 60s, but we’ll boost up into the 70s by Monday.

Monday’s storm chance is very low for now, but it does increase for Tuesday into Wednesday as another WAVE Weather ALERT DAY kicks in.

Strong to severe storms are possible Tuesday, so keep an eye on our forecast for updates during this busy spring weather pattern!
