Rainy Weekend

Thursday afternoon and night- There is a 20% possibility of a few isolated showers and thunderstorms for the area this afternoon. A high near 85 and winds out of the southwest at 7mph.

Friday- Thunderstorms are very possible starting around noon as a cold front begins to move through south central Kentucky. There is a 40% chance of stronger storms. The high will be 83 with winds 6-10 mph out of the southwest. Around night fall the chance for storms goes up to 80% with rain fall totals between a quarter and half an inch.

Saturday- A 40% chance of storms remains in the area with a high around 76 for the day. Mostly cloudy with a light wind out of the north.

Tonight holds the a small chance of precipitation, but it will be mainly north and east of Warren County. Tonight will be partly cloudy with a low around 65. The main focus is on Friday. The SPC(Storm Prediction Center) has posted a slight risk that dips down into Louisville, KY. We should not see the same strong storms that they will, but we will have the chance for some strong weather. A cold front will be passing through Kentucky tomorrow beginning around lunch time bringing us a chance for storms. The National Weather Service in Louisville has said that any damage from the storms will be from strong winds and a few strong storms. We should expect to see small amounts of rain mostly west of the I-65 corridor. Rainfall totals adding up to about a half an inch at the most. The cold front will cool temperatures down for us, but not by much. The high for Saturday is 76 with partly cloudy skies. There is still a 40% chance of showers and storms on Saturday until around 1pm as the cold front pushes out of our area. This will bring in a high pressure ridge behind it clearing up the skies for the next several days.
