This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of south central
Indiana and Central Kentucky.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Isolated thunderstorms are expected this afternoon and evening. Brief
heavy rainfall, frequent lightning, and gusty winds will be the
primary hazards.

Outside of cooling rains, it will be hot. Peak heat index values
during the afternoon will be around 100 degrees, though areas along
and west of I-65 could see heat index values up to 105.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday.

Thunderstorms will be possible ahead of a weak cold front as it
approaches and then stalls somewhere in the Ohio Valley for most of
the work week. The main threats will be gusty winds and heavy rain.

Outside of these cooling rains, it will be hot during peak heating
Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. Look for peak heat indices
generally around 100 degrees, but they could get near 105 in our
Louisville and Bowling Green metro areas.


Spotter activation is not expected.
