7/18 - 3:45pm - Slight Risk for Severe Weather This Evening

The Storm Prediction Center has issued a SLIGHT Risk for severe weather this evening, with the main threat to the Louisville area being high winds. A squall line of storms has been developing this afternoon to our west and should be coming through here sometime after 4:15pm. An embedded cell within this line near English, Indiana has reached severe limits and I do expect this line to strengthen given the highly unstable environment and moisture available in the region. Once this line comes through, we may see a few scattered storms develop tonight due to enhancement by the low-level jet.

Since a cold front will be stalling out south of Indianapolis tomorrow, we'll see another good storm chance on Monday and Tuesday. The Storm Prediction Center has placed us under a 15% SLIGHT Risk for severe storms again tomorrow, with the main risk being high wind again. After another 90-degree day on Monday, temperatures will bump into the mid 90's for the remainder of the week.
