  • One more mainly dry day
  • Storm chances rise by midweek, providing some hope of drought relief - but not for all
  • Dry and warm in time for the weekend

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Clear skies are with us tonight as high pressure remains in control for just one more night. Lows will be in the upper 50s and lower 60s as we head into early Tuesday morning.

Partly sunny skies on Tuesday will be accompanied by a small shower chance in the afternoon as a low pressure system begins to move in from the west. Highs will be in the 80s during the day.

A warm front pushing in from the southwest will trigger scattered showers and storms Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning. Lows will be in the 60s as we start Wednesday.

Periods of thunderstorms are possible on Wednesday, and some could be strong with gusty winds and small hail during the afternoon. We desperately need the rain, so this is a welcome change!

Storm chances will continue on Thursday, but once again this will be a scenario where not everyone will see rain, leaving some high and dry.

We’ll dry out completely in time for the weekend as high pressure nudges back in from the northeast, shutting down our rain chances. Highs will be in the 80s as we round out the workweek.
