    There is a chance for strong to severe thunderstorms Friday afternoon into the evening hours. The Storm Prediction Center has parts of Kentucky in a BGP Category 1 Marginal Risk Area for strong to severe storms.

    A band of showers and thunderstorms is forecast to develop along an advancing cold front by Friday afternoon/early evening. For now, the primary risk looks to be damaging winds lightning and maybe some heavy downpours under the stronger storms.


    As for timing, the following simulated radar is from 5 pm ET/4 CT to 5 am ET/4 CT. It shows a line of thunderstorms developing between 5-8 pm ET and transversing southeastward across Kentucky.

    Friday morning update

    The severe weather threat level has risen for those in the Cincinnati/NKY and surrounding area. The BGP Threat level is now at level 2 Slight Risk Area for strong to severe thunderstorms later this afternoon into the early evening hours. The level 1 Marginal Risk Area has been extended southwestward into parts of western Kentucky.

    Severe storms are possible across parts of Ohio and Kentucky late this afternoon and evening, accompanied by the risk for potentially damaging wind gusts. Also a small chance for some hail in the Cincinnati/NKY area. The possibility of a brief tornado can't be ruled out.


    The timing is from around 5 pm ET/4 CT to around 8 pm ET/ 4 CT. With the best chance for strong to severe weather in the Cincinnati/NKY area around 8 pm ET.

    Friday afternoon update

    A line of showers and thunderstorms some of which could be strong to severe should start forming around 5 pm ET just north and west and along the Ohio River. This line then will traverse southeasterly across Kentucky. These storms could produce damaging winds, lightning, and a couple of tornadoes will be possible.

    It's absolutely pouring here in downtown Louisville right now. No thunder or lightning as of yet, but the rain is pretty crazy.

    ...and ten minutes later the rain has completely passed over and the sun is back out.
