Widespread rain with embedded thunderstorms so far this afternoon has delayed the development of stronger storms across central Kentucky. The potential is still there this evening. Areas west of I-65 have a greater probability of seeing severe weather.

Waves of rain and thunderstorms will continue to march through into the midnight hour. A few strong storms are still possible this evening. Strong winds and heavy rain are the primary threat. Some thunderstorms today have also produced small hail. Activity will diminish as it moves east into the wee hours of Sunday.

Even outside of thunderstorms it will remain gusty tonight. Wind gusts up to 40 mph will be possible for parts of central Kentucky. Once the cold front crosses late tonight skies will start to clear with lows only settling into the mid to upper 40s. Before you head to bed don’t forget to spring forward. Daylight Saving Time begins early Sunday. The weekend will end with an exclamation point! Despite still being windy and slightly cooler, the sunshine will shine with highs in the mid to upper 50s.
