Midnight Update:  A few passing clouds will continue through early Wednesday morning, with overnight low temperatures falling into the lower 60s.  Wednesday will start off partly sunny with clouds increasing through the day, and afternoon high temperatures around 83 degrees.  By the late afternoon to evening hours of Wednesday, thunderstorms will begin to develop across Northern Kentucky and move southward.  Some thunderstorms could be strong to severe Wednesday, with gusty winds, large hail, and locally heavy rainfall possible.  Lingering rain showers and isolated thunderstorms will be possible again for Thursday, yet look to be a little more limited in coverage than Wednesday, with Thursday high temperatures around 80 degrees.  A cold front will cross through Kentucky on Thursday, with temperatures falling into the upper 70s for Friday with partly sunny skies.  The Memorial Day Weekend will feature a warming trend, with mostly sunny to partly sunny skies, and high temperatures in the upper 70s to mid 80s.  There will be a chance for some isolated, late day thunderstorms on Memorial Day Monday.
