Rain temporarily coming to an end. More storms tonight!
The heavy rains have come to an end, for now.
Currently, it is overcast with light fog and a cool 57° in Louisville.
Parts of the area picked up between two and three inches of rain earlier prompting a Flood Adivisory for some of our western counties.
Fortunately, the rain has ended for those areas and despite the clouds, much of the metro is now rain free.
Heavy rainfall does continue further south and east though with pockets heavy thunderstorm activity extended from just south of E-town to just north of Campbellsville including Bardstown and Lebanon. These storms are moving off to the east.
The culprit for all the rain is a slow moving frontal boundary that is being aided by several pieces of energy aloft.
With this set up, we can expect more rain and storms over the next few days as some very warm and moist air surges up into the Ohio Valley.
AdvanceTrak is showing the dry weather that we are expecting to return this afternoon with some sunshine also possible especially for our western and southern counties.
Any heating we get could add fuel to the next round that occurs, as early as this evening. AT is showing more storms developing across the northern half of Kentuckiana by 9 or 10 this evening.
Although widespread severe weather is not anticipated, some could be strong with gusty winds and small hail.
