LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - It’s an Alert Day as severe storms are possible in our area between 6 p.m. tonight and 5 a.m. Thursday. Damaging winds, marginally severe hail, and a small tornado threat are on the table. This evolves into a flooding threat for Kentucky Thursday morning.

By midday Thursday the heavy rain and flooding threat in our Kentucky counties subsides. Additional scattered storms are possible Thursday afternoon and early evening as a weak cold front finally moves through. Highs on Thursday will be in the 70s.

Any lingering showers and storms will fade away by midnight Thursday night, leaving us with a partly cloudy sky and fog potential by Friday morning. Use caution if you run into low visibility during the Friday morning commute!

Friday marks a return to the warm, dry, and sunny weather pattern we’ve had for a while. Expect highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s during the afternoon.

A ridge of high pressure building over the Eastern U.S. will take temperatures into the mid 80s for the weekend, with some potential for upper 80s next week. Dry air and sunny skies will continue to be the theme of the forecast next week as the unseasonably warm air sits in place.
