Heavy Rain and Severe Weather Possible Today through Thursday

A cold front will come in from the northwest and slowly cross southern Indiana tonight and central Kentucky on Thursday.  There will be plenty of summertime humidity in the air, which will give the cold front lots of moisture to work with.  Thunderstorms are expected to accompany the front as it moves through, and locally torrential downpours will be possible.  Also, there may be some training of storms as they move from west to east along and ahead of the front.  The heavy rains could lead to new flooding concerns in the region.

Severe storms will also be possible, especially in southern Indiana this afternoon and evening.  Strong wind gusts appear to be the main severe threat.  Once again, however, heavy rain will be the bigger threat overall. 

Depending on how quickly the front drives through the area, additional thunderstorms will be possible tomorrow, primarily in southern Kentucky.
