FORECAST SUMMARY:

Get set for some changes in our weather across Kentuckiana on this Wednesday as a wave of energy increases our chances for scattered showers and thunderstorms. As JCPS and a number of other school systems head back to class today the rain gear may be needed, especially this afternoon so take it along to be on the safe side. Afternoon highs will be into the mid to upper 80s, so it will be another warm and muggy day to go along with the rain chances. We should see a better chance of more widespread rain and storms tonight and unfortunately for the opening of the Kentucky State Fair on Thursday. Any of the storms that develop have the potential to produce some localized heavy downpours and a few isolated strong storms can’t be ruled out.

The unsettled weather will be hanging around into the late week and the early part of the weekend as a boundary hangs over the area and a few waves of energy swing through. While we shouldn't see a wash out to end the week, more widespread rain and storms will be possible on Saturday. Highs will be into the mid-80s with more cloudiness around along with the storm chances. It appears we could squeeze out a dry Sunday to end the weekend for much of Kentuckiana with highs back into the upper 80s. Another storm system could bring additional rain and storms back to the area by early part of next week. Have a great Wednesday!

TODAY: Mostly cloudy with scattered storms High: 86. Wind: SW 5-10 mph.

TONIGHT: Occasional rain and storms, warm and muggy. Low: 72. Wind: SW 5-10 mph.

THURSDAY: Breezy with more rain and storms. High: 84. Wind: S 10-15 mph.
