The worst of the strong to severe thunderstorms looks to be this evening through early tonight, with scattered thunderstorms still possible overnight. Overnight low temperatures will be around 63 degrees. A weak cold front will move through Kentucky on Thursday, with lingering rain possible early Thursday, and clearing skies by Thursday afternoon. Thursday will be a little milder, with a high of 78 degrees.
