LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Warm this afternoon with a continued risk for a brief downpour/thunderstorm to pop this afternoon and early evening. Just be aware of isolated lightning strikes.

In addition, the Louisville Metro is under an Air Quality Alert through the evening.

Early evening downpours will quickly fade away through sunset with a partly cloudy sky overnight. Some patchy fog possible for any areas that pick up some rainfall today.

We’ll see one more day with a scattered storm chance on Wednesday as temperatures climb into the 80s once again. Partly cloudy and warm with lows in the 60s.

The afternoon thunderstorm chances will ease down for the end of the week and the heat starts to take over the headlines. Expect highs in the 90s for the first time this year with little if any rainfall.
