6:38 PM UPDATE
Watching a bowing segment that may clip NE Jennings and aim for Ripley County in Indiana shortly. It likely will contains winds of 50 to 60 mph.
Otherwise, it will be storms to our west in IL that will take a while to get here...but those are the the ones to watch to see how well they can maintain.
6:06 PM UPDATE
Storms still slowly sagging south. May slow timing for Louisville Metro down a bit to after 10pm until Midnight. Northern areas from Bedford to Seymour likely still on track for 8-10pm.
In other news, Louisville tied a record high today of 83 set back in 1977. This was our 9th 80 degree day this month...a record for March.
4:49 PM UPDATE
A couple of Severe Thunderstorm WATCHES remain in effect to our north. The closest one includes our northern-most counties of Jackson over to Jennings in Indiana until 11pm.
The radar is lighting up quick with warnings and well...lightning. Large hail has been reported with this line so far.
The shaded counties are under severe thunderstorm warnings as of this post.
Keep in mind, this line is going to take several more hours to push into our area.
Northern counties in Indiana: 7-9pm
Louisville Metro: 9-11pm
South/east of Louisville 10-12midnight (storms likely fading by this time)
The best energy for these storms is north of us across central IL/IN/OH...so the severe threat is a bit lower for us locally.
There is a chance the line would weaken quite a bit when it crosses the Ohio River. We will watch and hope for that trend.
