Enhanced Risk of Severe Weather Tuesday and Tuesday Night [Forecast]
Last night, around 4am, we had a Severe Thunderstorm Warning issued for Daviess County. And, according to the National Weather Service, there's going to be much more of that today. We are under an ENHANCED risk of severe weather today!
The current Hazardous Weather Outlook:
Isolated thunderstorms moving northeast between 50 and 60 mph early this morning will produce marginal to damaging hail through daybreak over parts of Southeast Missouri, Southern Illinois, West Kentucky, and Southwest Indiana. Secondary hazards will be frequent lightning and locally heavy rain. An isolated strong wind gust over 40 mph cannot be ruled out. There will likely be a lull in the strong to severe thunderstorms late this morning and into the early afternoon. There may be multiple regions of storm development, leading to more than one opportunity for severe weather through tonight. The first time period will be late Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday evening, then again overnight, as a cold front moves across the area. All severe weather modes will be possible, including large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes. If certain parameters come together, we cannot rule out a strong tornado or two from southeast Missouri, into southern Illinois and far west Kentucky. Storm motion should be east northeast around 50 mph.
