FLASH FLOOD WATCH FOR PARTS OF KENTUCKIANA UNTIL 8PM EDT THURSDAY
Our stormy and unsettled weather pattern here in Kentuckiana looks to stick around heading into the late week. After the potential of a few strong to severe storms tonight, a frontal boundary will eventually slide through the region late Thursday. A few additional pop-up storms will be possible along the front, otherwise expect mostly cloudy skies and highs into the low 80s. With the chances for heavy rain producing storms here in the short term, a Flash Flood Watch is up for part of Kentuckiana until 8 pm EDT Thursday. Our break for the active weather will be confined Thursday night and early Friday as the summer season officially arrives just before Noon. Much of the data is now indicating a complex of storms will arrive a bit earlier on Friday as afternoon highs should reach the mid-80s.
Into the weekend, additional storms will be possible, especially into the afternoon hours. It will feel like summer through the weekend with highs in the upper 80s to around 90 degrees and the uncomfortable humidity levels persisting. With another boundary in the area, more scattered showers and storms will be possible on Sunday and into early next week. We should see another break from the wet weather into the middle of next week, as the model data now tries to hold on to a stray storm chance Tuesday before drying things out.
TONIGHT: Rain and storms. Low: 70. Wind: SW 5-10 mph.
THURSDAY: Partly cloudy with a few storms. High: 81. Wind: SW 10-15 mph.
FRIDAY: Partly cloudy with scattered storms. High: 86. Wind: SW 5-10 mph.
