Thursday afternoon updateThere is now a category 2 Slight Risk Area for parts of Kentucky from the I-65 corridor back westward. A category 1 Marginal Risk Area exists from I-65 to just east of the I-75 corridor. Hail will likely be the predominant risk, though locally damaging winds and a couple of tornadoes may also occur, with risk lingering into the evening before diminishing over time.

Thursday evening updateThe following is the HRRR Ohio Valley Radar. It is from 3-11 pm EDT Friday. It shows storms form about the Land between the Lakes area to the I-75 corridor. A second round could reach the Cincinnati/NKY area around the 10-11 pm time slot. All of the threats look to be in the mix. Hail, damaging winds and a better chance to see a tornado or two.
I'm working on coming up with my own tornado chance index. I may have it ready to try tomorrow morning when i do my update.

Friday morning updateAs of this morning, there is some uncertainty on the timing of the storms for later today. It should be a dry day for Friday. A complex of storms will move into southwest Indiana this evening and push southeast across Kentucky later tonight. A few of the storms could produce damaging winds as the main threat.
This HRRR Ohio Valley Radar is from 5-9 pm EDT.
As soon as I can I will post another update. Storms could refire up on Saturday so it seems the wet pattern we are in will continue after the break we get today.
