Muggy air will fuel developing showers and storms this evening and tonight over Kentuckiana.  The storms will fire up out west near a cold front and aided by a mid-level disturbance.  The main threats with these storms will be brief damaging wind gusts in excess of 50-60 mph, hail, very heavy rain, and lightning.  

An outbreak of severe weather is not expected, but be aware if you have outdoor plans, maybe heading out to the fair, that a few storms could become strong to severe.

Areas along and north of the Ohio River are under a Slight Risk of Severe Storms.  The 15% wind/hail threat area is under the same area.  Little to no threat of a tornado.

Check out the timing of the storms with our Futurecast maps below.  Storms will be firing up west of I-65 in Southern Indiana first around sunset (after 8pm).  Storms will be moving east/southeast toward Louisville Metro between 9:30 - 11:30pm.  The threat diminishes off to our east after midnight.
