Warmer air has moved in overnight, as promised, as that has put us into the upper 50s here in the city this morning. That's warmer than yesterday's high of 54°! In fact, that high broke the previous cool high temperature... Continue reading

We like to call this good napping weather. Showers, clouds, and chilly temperatures will make for a not-so-nice Saturday across WAVE Country. The showers begin moving in early this afternoon and will be with us off and on through the... Continue reading

Tonight's the night! A lunar eclipse happening this evening starting around 9:07pm will be unlike anything we'll see until 2033. This one is so special because the eclipse is happening during a "supermoon", when the moon is slightly closer to... Continue reading

Compared to yesterday, we'll be a bit drier today in WAVE Country. Only a few scattered showers are possible this afternoon and the best chance for those are just southeast of the city. It's all being caused by an upper-level... Continue reading

Behind yesterday's front high pressure has settled into WAVE Country, making for a mostly sunny day with cool temperatures in the mid 70s. Monday-Wednesday look similar as skies remain mostly sunny to sunny with highs in the upper 70s to... Continue reading

We've got showers and storms moving through Southern Indiana this morning but they'll weaken as they approach I-65 just after sunrise. A few of these may make it to Louisville, albeit much weaker than they are now. By the afternoon... Continue reading

Hope you're enjoying the crisp, chilly air this morning! This fall preview won't stick around long though. After spending a day in the upper 60s to lower 70s we'll plunge down to the 40s and 50s again tonight. Tomorrow afternoon... Continue reading

Cool air aloft driving into WAVE Country today will help spark scattered showers this afternoon. While it won't be the hypothetical "washout" that we sometimes talk about, it will be enough of a chance that you'll need to have a... Continue reading

The stagnant pattern of heat and isolated storms continues. Yesterday afternoon and early evening we had some gusty thunderstorms that took out power for a few and caused minor damage, but overall most of WAVE Country was dry. The disturbance... Continue reading

These 90s aren't going anywhere for a few days. 95 was the high temperature yesterday, tying the hottest of the year so far, and that's the high we have forecast for the next couple of days. Heat index values should... Continue reading

While a few folks to the west of Louisville are seeing some downpours this morning, the rest of us should stay dry through the early afternoon. At that point scattered thunderstorms begin to develop and they'll be with us until... Continue reading

Humidity, heat, and storm chances are all going up this weekend. But, the storm chances are small ones. With a lack of a clear "trigger" in place, isolated storms today should stay pretty sparse. The best chance for these is... Continue reading

It's going to be getting warmer over the next several days. A ridge of high pressure will begin building in the eastern half of the nation and that should put us near or above 90 degrees for most of the... Continue reading

This is the most active day of the forecast this week, but you also have to remember that the rest of this week looks amazing. A scattered storm chance arrives by the afternoon (late) into the evening. The big "ifs"... Continue reading

Yesterday was pretty active with scattered storms across WAVE Country but today should be tamer than that. Isolated storms are possible during the afternoon but coverage and intensity should be much lower as highs top out near 90. Today is... Continue reading

We're turning up the heat and unfortunately this is a thermostat you can't adjust on your own. 90s today and tomorrow won't have excessive humidity to go along with it but it will still feel hot. There is a code... Continue reading

We look mostly dry for Sunday across WAVE Country but I'm having a hard time ruling out rainfall completely as we head through the afternoon. A shower or downpour isn't out of the question across our Southern Indiana counties thanks... Continue reading

Most woke up to low visibility earlier this morning but the fog is now mixing out across all of WAVE Country. Expect mostly sunny skies this afternoon with highs in the upper 80s. Sunday is a different story. A wave... Continue reading

Sunshine, low humidity... what's not to like? While highs today and tomorrow will be in the upper 80s and lower 90s respectively it won't feel all too bad with the dry air in place. On Sunday evening a storm chance... Continue reading

There's a bit of uncertainty regarding the afternoon forecast. Clouds are moving in to some of our area now and a line of storms in Illinois is moving southeastward toward Western Kentucky. The wave of energy causing these storms will... Continue reading

It's late July. We're supposed to be hot and humid this time of year but that doesn't make anticipating another heat wave coming our way any better. The good news at least is that heat index values won't be out... Continue reading

Get ready for a hot one. Should we hit 95° this afternoon that will be the hottest we've been in 2015 so far. Heat index values may reach 108° in spots, especially in the city. Drink plenty of water and... Continue reading

This is an ugly weather setup. If the storms don't affect you (they won't hit everyone) the heat certainly will. We have a Heat Advisory in effect for the afternoons of today and Sunday as heat index values could reach... Continue reading
