LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- WDRB Chief Meteorologist Marc Weinberg says conditions are right to produce severe weather in the overnight hours. That could include the possibility of tornadoes as well as potentially damaging straight-line winds.
Tornado WATCH is in effect until 5 a.m. Wednesday for almost all of the WDRB viewing area.
Local utility companies are on standby tonight as severe weather threatens the area.
They're ready to respond to any downed power lines from straight line winds. LG&E is encouraging people to report any downed wires or outages in their neighborhoods.
You can report any issues to (502) 589-3500. You can also take a look at the outage map on their website, www.lge-ku.com/storm
There are many people in the area who are watching the storm closely.
Roofers spent Tuesday evening securing metal sheets and other equipment, hoping it holds through the night.
"It should be able to withstand the winds and stuff like that but if a tornado hits that's another story, it just kinda depends on how ferocious this storm actually is," said Micah Augustine.
Across town, cyclists are hoping the storm comes in full force.
"I hope it rains a real lot and this thing gets real muddy and makes it a real cyclocross race, dirt mud wet," said Jonathan Page, U.S. National Champion.
Cyclotrons depends on mother nature to turn dirt into mud, and rough up the course for the world championship taking place in Louisville. But workers are still taking precaution.
"We've had discussions with all the vendors and they're prepping as best they can then after that you just come back in a look if anything happened and repair," said Karl Schmitt, Louisville Sports Commission.
All anyone can do, is wait this one out and take a look in the morning.
