A simply cloudy forecast will carry the Tri-State into Thursday afternoon when wet weather will move in. Scattered showers with an occasional downpour is likely before more substantial wet weather develops on Friday. Friday is looking like the better day for storms with a few strong storms possible as well, but that is better off to our south. Northern Kentucky counties have been placed in a marginal risk (level 1 of 5) for severe weather Friday. We are tracking the system now.


It's a system that will hang around for the weekend, so we start with a few showers possible for early Saturday. Then, mainly dry weather finishes the day with highs in the mid to upper 60s. Mother’s Day looks like the best day of the weekend. Trending dry right now with temps in the low to mid 70s and partly sunny skies.

The Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby are Friday and Saturday, respectively. Unfortunately, those Oaks and Derby Day races and parties here and there will have a chance for a few showers and storms. If you are traveling to Louisville expect to get wet, especially for Friday. Pack your rain gear to go along with those hats for Saturday too. The afternoon temps will hit the upper 60s to mid 70s.

Next week, we are in for a MAJOR warm up as highs jump into the low to mid 80s!
