Storm chances high late this afternoon

10:30 A.M. Wed., April 5, 2017

Atmosphere appears set up to do some damage later today – especially east of the I-65 corridor.  Strong upper air system is approaching and ample moisture is streaming northward.  That sets up a pretty high chance for thunderstorms as well as severe storms.  System will be slow to develop and will just be getting rolling about the time it hits central KY.  Strong/severe line of storms should pass Louisville area between 5 P.M. and 8 P.M.  Hail and high winds appear likely.   Storm line will intensify as it moves east of I-65 and heads toward I-75.  Also, higher risk for storms, some severe, over southern KY from I-65 eastward.

Much colder air arrives tomorrow.
