Happy Thursday!

The rain is quieting down some, but there's another line of showers and storms moving through the Louisville area. This line will bring another round of rain into the Mountains later this afternoon through the evening. Meanwhile, the muggy and warm conditions will persist. Highs will range in the lower 80s.

Most of the rain should come to an end by midnight. From there, temperatures will drop to the lower 60s and fog is likely to develop through the morning.

Otherwise, Friday will be off to a dry and partly sunny start. Afternoon pop-up showers and storms are possible, especially south of Highway 80. Most of the rain will be sporadic and brief.

Once Memorial Weekend kicks off, a very similar pattern continues. The first half of Saturday will be dry before isolated afternoon rain develops. On Sunday, the rain has a better chance of developing through the morning and afternoon, but it will still be hit and miss rain.

Memorial Day is looking warm, muggy, and a bit rainy in the afternoon. There is an area of low pressure in the Atlantic Ocean, which is expected to track northwest toward the Carolinas. If it does, this could bring prolonged rain through the beginning of the week.

As the system tracks northwest, it's very likely that it will become more organized, and could even become tropical or subtropical. If this storm becomes tropical, it would be the second named storm of 2016. Hurricane season officially starts June 1st, but in January, Hurricane Alex moved through The Azores. By the time the storm made landfall, it was Tropical Storm Alex.

Have a great night!
