FLASH FLOOD & SEVERE STORM UPDATE: Timing Tonight's Rain...

Severe storms with powerful winds knocked a number of trees down leading to scattered power outages today. Well, another round of rain arrives tonight. Check out future radar at 11 PM that shows storms moving into our western counties...

By 1 AM, locations from Louisville points north could be dealing with storms. Downpours, lightning, small hail and gusty wind are the main threats. Luckily, the severe risk looks much lower due to all of the rain that occurred. Strong storms are certainly still possible, maybe even a severe west of I-65. It would be nothing like what happened earlier today...

While the severe risk has come down, the flash flooding risk has come up. Many zones picked up a couple inches of rain so it won't take much to create problems. Right now, we need to keep an eye on south-central Kentucky. Notice the red on AdvanceTrak, an indication of very heavy rain coming down over a short period of time. If you have to travel tonight please avoid water-covered roads...

Later tonight is when the southern half of our area has a better shot for storms. There would be even less fuel for storms at this hour, so I wouldn't be too worried about waking up to severe weather...

Friday starts of with some rain along and south of the river according to this computer model. It stays sticky and warm before additional hit or miss storms flare up during the afternoon hours.

 Marc and I will be on WDRB tonight tracking the next wave of storms and talking about when high temperatures get knocked down into the 70's.
