The atmosphere has had some time to re-charge after a morning round of storms. Batches of storms have been popping up across the Midwest and will eventually march into the Ohio Valley. We are expecting a line of strong/severe storms to move into the Bluegrass later this evening.
Fortunately for us timing will be on our side. The thunderstorms will arrive after sunset. By that point we will have lost some of the instability that we build up during the middle of the day. Still strong winds, large hail, and downpours will be possible within this line of strong thunderstorms. The threat will diminish after midnight.
We will keep the rounds of showers and storms going through the end of the work week. There looks to be a few more breaks in the action with this late-week activity. More rain and storms will arrive this weekend as a cut-off low moves on through. By Monday a widespread one to three inches of rain will be possible. Higher rainfall amounts are expected across parts of the Southeast and the Mississippi River Valley as tropical moisture interacts with this cut-off low.
