Storms approaching

Wed. May 8, 2024 5 P.M.

5:15 P.M. update to adjust timing… Rain showers should arrive in Louisville by around 6 P.M. Most of the severe storms over western KY are taking a path which will keep them south of Louisville – KY areas along and south of the Parkway will see the brunt of the storm activity over the next few hours.

Meanwhile, another severe cluster in the Owensboro to Evansville area could bring storms to the Louisville area between 7 and 9 P.M.

Original post below….

Today has been a very active severe weather day. Severe systems from yesterday continued overnight with severe weather (mostly hail). The storms have remained active today and are now becoming stronger and more numerous.

Western Kentucky has had significant hail storms most of the day. We are now seeing a new batch of storms developing rapidly and moving northeast. This cluster of potentially severe storms will arrive in the Louisville area between 6 and 7 P.M. Areas southwest of Louisville will see the storms sooner while areas north east of the city will see a later arrival. The Storm Prediction Center expects this to be an “all threats” situation. Large hail remains the greatest threat, but high winds and possibly some tornadoes may also develop.

Biggest threat to our region will end before Midnight as the system moves east.
