We all knew the sun and warmth couldn’t last forever. When you add that much warm air and moisture into the mix, eventually something has to give. We’re tracking showers and thunderstorms for Saturday, with continued rain Sunday. As of now, things are quiet. It’s a mild morning with a breezy every once in a while. Rain is not far off as the western fringe of the radar beam is already seeing showers.

Upon reaching the late morning hours, western counties and even the I-65 corridor will already be getting some of the activity. The line will progress eastward through the afternoon and evening. Expect scattered showers and thunderstorms, some of which can be strong. The bulk of the severe weather stay south of Kentucky. If we see any storms reach severe criteria, it will be due to damaging wind gusts and isolated large hail. Also, keep in mind that besides the storms, today will be a breezy day in general. Storms will taper as the sun sets, but showers will continue overnight and through tomorrow. This is a slow moving front and we may even get a few developing storms later on Sunday as the line is just passing eastern counties. Afterwards, leftover moisture may drop light/isolated rain/snow showers into Monday as cooler air moves in.
