REMINDER! This Saturday I'll be leaving for Denver, CO to start my 9th annual storm chasing trip in the Great Plains with Storm Chasing Adventure Tours. Our chase days, depending on the weather, will be June 5-10. I'll be covering the chase LIVE on my Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts, as well as posting daily chase forecasts and photos/videos right here on the WAVE 3 News Weather Blog.

This morning we've seen some clouds and a few light sprinkles east of I-65 thanks to moisture streaming in from what was Tropical Storm Bonnie (now back to depression status). Those fade away during the rest of the morning and we'll be left with partly sunny skies for the day. Afternoon heating and a weak cold front will generate some scattered thunderstorms this afternoon, especially along and north of the I-64 corridor. Severe weather is not expected but any storm that does develop could put down brief heavy rain and lightning. 5-6pm is when the storms should be at their max strength and coverage. They fade away around sunset, leaving us dry and in the 60s overnight.
We'll get close to 90° on Memorial Day, but not quite. Sunshine will be abundant! Since today's cold front will be to our east, slightly drier air will impede storm development, so only expect about a 10% tiny storm chance during the heating of the day. Stay hydrated out there!
A stronger cold front moving through with thunderstorms on Thursday brings us drier, cooler air as we head into next weekend. It's going to be a nice break from the heat! Check out the video below for more on that.
