General showers will be the main action over the next few hours. A few could remain on the strong to severe side in eastern parts of Kentucky.
The heat and humidity is about to take a backseat to thunderstorms in the coming days. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms look to give much of the region a nice drink of water.
Isolated boomers will be possible through tonight with lows dropping toward 70. Scattered storms will become more common on Thursday with highs into the upper 80s.
A cold front will drop into Kentucky by the weekend. That front looks to put the brakes on and this should allow for an increase in the storms. That doesn't mean it will rain all the time, but you will have an increased chance for storms.
Locally heavy rainfall is a good bet during this time with highs into the middle 80s.
Scattered storms with highs in the 80s may hang tough through much of next week.
