We’re watching a line of showers and storms sitting over the central counties this morning. This line is associated with a slow-moving stationary boundary which will keep rain and storms over us for the next few days. Heavy rain could lead to flash flooding, especially with the line this morning. Temperatures will warm a little more today into the middle 80s allowing more thunderstorms to form into the afternoon.

Rain showers and a few thunderstorms continue in a line segment that stretches from Louisville metro down to where I-75 crosses into Tennessee. This line has been staying put thanks to the stationary boundary that sits over us. This has been causing a training effect for these storms keeping heavy rates over the same locations for hours at a time. Flooding is likely in these areas through the next several hours. Watch for high water. Late today, we’ll have more of a typical scattered storm pattern thanks to daytime heating. There will be a little sunshine, but not much. The FLASH FLOOD WATCH will remain in effect through tonight, especially for areas getting rain this morning. Scattered thunderstorms will flare this afternoon and continue to drop heavy rain. Storms will continue off and on through the next few days as the stalled front remains overhead. It will move on late in the week allowing high pressure to slide in and bring us nice (and summery) weather for the holiday weekend.
