Heavy tropical rains moving into Louisville!
As expected, daytime heating is combining with an abundance of tropical moisture to produce scattered storms across the region this afternoon.
The storms are most numerous across the northern half of the viewing area right now with some heavy cells located near both Madison and North Vernon as well as one to the west of Paoli.
However, the heaviest of these storms has developed to the southwest of Louisville along the Ohio River.
This cell is located across Southeastern Harrison and far Eastern Meade County. It is moving to the northeast at about 20 to 25 mph and will be capable of torrential rainfall and wind gusts to 40 mph.
I expect this cell to move into Louisville over the next 15 to 20 minutes.
Watchout for ponding on the roadways and slow down to prevent hydroplaning.
