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.
