The first image below shows the current storm timeline for Thursday morning. Damaging winds, hail, frequent lightning and heavy rain will be our main issues with the storms moving through the area. A major severe weather outbreak is NOT expected, but some storms could become severe.
The next map show the Storm Prediction Center's Slight Risk for severe storms area, which is west of us today, but sneaking into areas west of I-65 after midnight (mainly after 3am). The next map shows the Slight Risk for Thursday, which covers most of our area. Strong storms could redevelop over the Bluegrass and Eastern Kentucky tomorrow afternoon.
The next map shows the tornado risk today, which is to our west over the Mid-Mississippi Valley region. Next, is the wind threat which is also west today, but arriving for our western areas late overnight.
Finally, the last map is Futurecast (RPM model) showing the line of storms over Metro Louisville and I-65 around 8am. Once the storms clear, leftover showers with cooler and cloudy conditions will be persist into the afternoon Thursday.
Cooler 50s Friday and Saturday, then warming back with more storms chances next week.
