The highest storm threat today will be during dinnertime, or when you're out and about at after school practices, so keep your guard up later today for strong or severe storms. 

Here's a look at Futurecast at 5pm today and notice showers and thunderstoms bubbling up along a warm front.  Most of the storms will hold off until after 4pm, moving in from the west/northwest.  Some of these storms could be severe with damaging wind and hail the main threats.  Expect some heavy rain and lightning as well.  Keep reading below for more maps.

The next image below is at 10pm.  Notice the first round of showers/storms heading to the east late in the evening.  But, another round develops to our west around the same time.  The next image shows the next line moving in around midnight.

Below is the second potential batch of storms.  This arrives around midnight and the main threat will be damaging straight-line winds.  These storms are associated with an area of low pressure and cold front.  The next image shows when the storms exit the area.

Below is Futurecast showing the storms leaving the area early Thursday morning.  We should be back to dry conditions for the Thursday morning commute.  If storms redevelop Thursday afternoon, it will likely be to the south over central and southern Kentucky, and not as strong.  The next image is the Storm Prediction Center's Slight Risk outlook for today.

Notice all of Kentuckiana is under a Slight Risk of severe storms, the main threat damaging winds.  Be alert and be ready to head inside if you hear thunder or a warning is issued for your area.
