A rinse and repeat forecast with be on tap today. Expect mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies to develop in the afternoon with pop-up showers and storms.

A shortwave trough will move through the region on Thursday. This may prompt a few isolated showers and thunderstorms throughout the day as highs reach toward that 90° mark. You can see the pronounced shortwave over western Kentucky below.
The main story may be Thursday evening and into the overnight. A complex of thunderstorms should move through the region.
With such a strong convective signal, as well as moderate to high instability, severe weather is a concern. A few damaging wind gust is the main threat. Torrential rainfall and vivid lightning will also be possible.
With rain and cloud cover over the region, lows look to remain mild in the mid 70s.

Partly cloudy skies are expected overnight as lows drop into the low to mid 60s.
