Midnight Update:  The rain and thunderstorm activity has diminished over Kentucky for now, yet a line of strong to severe thunderstorms to our north will continue to move through the Ohio Valley.  We are expecting another round of thunderstorms to develop in the Midwest Wednesday afternoon, and then move through Kentucky by late Wednesday and Wednesday night.  Some thunderstorms may be severe, with gusty winds, large hail, and heavy rainfall the biggest threats.  Wednesday afternoon high temperatures will be around 90 degrees, with heat indices in the mid to upper 90s, setting the stage for an unstable atmosphere over the region.
___________________________________________________________________________________
We will continue to have warm and humid conditions for Wednesday, with the possibility for strong to severe thunderstorms Wednesday evening into early Thursday.

Tuesday Night: We will have partly cloudy skies overnight into Wednesday morning, with low temperatures around 70 degrees, making for a warm and muggy night.

Wednesday and Wednesday Night: Our warmest day of the week looks to be on Wednesday, with high temperatures near 90 degrees, and heat indices in the mid to upper 90s. There will be a chance for some afternoon and evening thunderstorms on Wednesday, with more widespread rain and thunderstorm activity for Wednesday night. Some thunderstorms may be strong to severe, with gusty winds, heavy rainfall, and hail the biggest threats. Because of the severe threat for our region, the Storm Prediction Center has all of Kentucky under an enhanced risk for severe weather. Overnight Wednesday into Thursday morning low temperatures will be around 69 degrees.

Thursday & Friday: A cold front will approach the region for the end of the work week, giving us scattered rain showers and thunderstorms on Thursday, with lingering rain chances into Friday. Thursday high temperatures will be around 86 degrees, with highs around 87 degrees for Friday.

Weekend: Temperatures will remain warm, yet slightly milder, with highs in the lower 80s for Saturday and Sunday. There will continue to be the chance for some isolated, late day thunderstorms through the weekend as well.

Next Week: A lingering upper level disturbance will continue to keep the chance for late day showers and thunderstorms in the forecast for next week, with below normal high temperatures around 80 degrees.
