A line of powerful storms continues to push from the Northwest to the Southeast. The Louisville metro and surrounding counties remain under the gun for severe storms as warnings have been issued. The main threat with these storms are going to be damaging winds. This nasty line of storms has the potential to produce winds in excess of 70 miles per hour in addition to hail and lightning being secondary threats. While the tornado threat is low an isolated spin up can’t be ruled out on the leading edge of the line. As of 8:30 the storms are approaching the Jefferson County line. They are expected to impact the city between 8:40-9:10 depending on what part of the city you live in. . Stay tuned to WAVE 3, WAVE 3.com, facebook and twitter. The entire weather team is here and continues to monitor the situation.
Lastly, the SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH has been pushed farther East to include the metro and counties just East...Henry, Shelby, Spencer, Nelson, and Bullitt counties…all until midnight. A steady rain will continue on the Western side of the line overnight and into tomorrow morning.
