METEOROLOGIST JAY CARDOSI. OKAY. STILL LOOKING AT SOME SCATTERED STRONG STORMS AROUND THE AREA ONE OF THE STORMS HAS INTENSIFIED ENOUGH THAT IS SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING HAS BEEN ISSUED BY THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE. THIS IS FOUR SOUTH EASTERN JEFFERSON COUNTY FROM NEAR J-TOWN DOWN TO FERN CREEK AND THEN POINTS OFF TOWARDS THE EAST AND SOUTHEAST FROM THEIR MOUNT WASHINGTON YOU FOLKS I BULLITT COUNTY ALSO INCLUDED IN THE IN TO NEAR ELK CREEK IN NORTH AND NORTH WESTERN SECTIONS OF SPENCER COUNTY. NOW THIS STORM AT LEAST HAS THE POTENTIAL TO PRODUCE A BRIEF STRONG WIND GUSTS THAT COULD BE UPWARDS OF 60 MILES AN HOUR AT LEAST 50 TO 60 MILES PER HOUR AND THAT WARNING GOES UNTIL 6:45 EASTERN DAYLIGHT TIME AS FAR AS THE RADAR SCAN AS WE GO A LITTLE BIT FARTHER OFF TO THE NORTHEAST. YOU CAN CERTAINLY ESCAPE SEE A SCATTERING OF STORMS FROM SOUTHERN OLDHAM NORTHERN PORTIONS OF SHELBY. INTO HENRY COUNTIES, THESE ARE NOT SEVERE ALSO OTHER DOWNPOURS SCATTERED AROUND SOUTHERN INDIANA JUST NORTH OF SALEM THOSE TWO ARE NOT SEVERE. SO OVERALL THE ATMOSPHERE IS REALLY NOT CONDUCIVE TO WIDESPREAD SEVERE WEATHER. WE’RE JUST DEALING WITH A LOT OF HEAT A LOT OF INSTABILITY SO FROM TIME TO TIME ON AN ISOLATED BASIS SOME OF THESE STORMS CAN REACH PRETTY TALL LEVELS THERE IN THE ATMOSPHERE AND THEN DRAG DOWN SOME WIND TO THE GROUND FOR A BRIEF TIME. AND WE CALL THOSE PULSE TYPE SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS AND THAT’S WHAT’S HAPPENING IN SOUTH EASTERN JEFFERSON COUNTY RIGHT NOW. YOU CAN SEE THOUGH. IT’S BEEN ANOTHER STORMY AFTERNOON ACROSS THE LOWER, OHIO VALLEY. ANYWAY, A FRONTAL SYSTEM IS SAGGING IN FROM THE NORTH. THERE’S SOME UPPER LEVEL JET ENERGY WEEK AT THAT, BUT NONETHELESS PASSING THROUGH AND GIVING RISE TO THESE SCATTERED STORMS. SO WATCH WHAT HAPPENS ON THE FUTURECAST, NO DOUBT THE CHANCES FOR SCATTERED SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL LINGER THE FIRST HALF OF THE I TEND TO WIND DOWN AS WE MOVE THROUGH THE OVERNIGHT AND LOSE SOME OF THIS INSTABILITY AND WHEN WE WAKE UP IN THE MORNING BASICALLY DRY SKIES EXPECTED FOR YOUR THURSDAY MORNING TEMPERATURES WILL BE WARM. IT WILL BE HUMID AGAIN WILL BE IN THE LOW PERHAPS EVEN MIDDLE 70S RIGHT AROUND 74 IN DOWNTOWN LOUISVILLE HEADING THROUGH THE DAY TOMORROW. I THINK IT’S GOING TO BE A DAY A LOT LIKE TODAY MUCH OF THE MORNING WILL BE FAIRLY QUIET AND THEN AS WE HEAT IT UP THOSE SCATTERED SHOWERS AND STORMS. WE’LL START BUBBLING UP AS THAT WEEK FRONTS EGGS IN FROM THE NORTH AGAIN A FEW OF THESE COULD BE KIND OF STRONG ON AN ISOLATED BASIS. ANYWAY, MAYBE A BRIEF WIND GUSTS SOME HEAVY RAINFALL FREQUENT LIGHTNING AND THEN EVERYTHING KIND OF FADES AWAY AS WE MOVE INTO TOMORROW NIGHT HIGH TEMPERATURES TOMORROW. IT’S GOING TO BE WARM AND SOUPY AGAIN LOTS OF HUMIDITY AGAIN FOR YOUR THURSDAY UPPER 80S TO NEAR 90 DEGREES EXPECTING 90 IN DOWNTOWN LOUISVILLE. THAT’S THE TEMPERATURE THE HEAT JAX WILL LIKELY BE MID AND UPPER 90S ACROSS THE REGION NOW THE GOOD NEWS IF YOU’RE TIRED OF THESE STORMS POPPING UP JUST ABOUT EACH AND EVERY AFTERNOON, WE’RE GOING TO START DRYING THINGS OUT THAT WEAK FRONT WILL HAVE PASSED BY BY FRIDAY MORNING LITTLE ZONE OF HIGH PRESSURE STARTS TO BUILD IN SO THE BOTTOM LINE STILL GOING TO BE A VERY VERY WARM DAY, BUT IT WILL BE A LITTLE LESS HUMID, AND IT DOES LOOK DRY FROM START TO FINISH. THAT’S THE GOOD NEWS AND I THINK THAT DRYING PATTERN WILL LAST INTO MUCH OF THE WEEKEND AS WELL. HERE’S THE FORECAST NOW WARM HUMID SCATTERED SHOWERS AND STORMS 70S AND 80S ACROSS THE REGION THE NEXT SEVERAL HOURS STILL A CHANCE FOR A FEW RUMBLES AT TEN O’CLOCK TONIGHT THEN GOING BASICALLY QUIET LAT TONIGHT THROUGH TOMORROW MORNING WILL WARM INTO THE MIDDLE 80S BY LUNCH HOUR TOMORROW AS WE CONTINUE TO HEAT IT UP TO 90 YET ANOTHER CHANCE FOR A FEW SCATTERED LATE DAY STORMS. DRY SKIES EXPECTED FRIDAY, SATURDAY SUNDAY GOOD NEWS FOR YOUR OUTDOOR WEEKEND PLA AND VICKY ANOTHER CHANCE FOR RAIN IN HERE. LATE MONDAY AND MONDAY NIGHT BEHIND THAT WILL COME SOME DRIER AIR AGAIN BY NEXT TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY. OKAY, SOUTH EASTERN JEFFERSON COUNTY PORTIONS OF THE METRO NORTH EASTERN BULLI COUNTY SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING 645 EASTERN DAYLIGHT TIME. I’LL WATCH IT CLOSE. I CAN STILL HEAR THE THUNDER ROLLING OVER
