...Unsettled Weather Returns; Waves of Rainfall Through Saturday...

Wet weather is moving into the area today. This morning showers will be likely along the Ohio River mainly west of I-65, but as we move into the afternoon and tonight, heavy rain and storms will be likely over much of the area. This wet pattern will likely stick around through much of the week.

Scattered to numerous thunderstorms are forecast Thursday through Saturday as a couple of upper-level disturbances move slowly across the Ohio Valley. Heavy rainfall will be focused over Kentucky Thursday morning before a second round of storms forms later in the afternoon. These storms may produce gusty winds and locally heavy rainfall.
