And here's what the NWS Storm Prediction Center is saying about our slight to enhanced risk for severe weather tonight:
The greatest potential for severe thunderstorms with damaging winds and large hail this afternoon and evening remains across parts of the Ohio and middle Mississippi Valleys. Other more isolated severe storms may occur across parts of the Mid Atlantic into the Carolinas, and across parts of west Texas. ...20Z Update... A small cluster of storms across central IN should continue south-southeastward this afternoon and evening. MLCAPE around 1500-2000 J/kg and 30-35 kt of effective bulk shear will likely support continued organization of these storms as they move into southern IN and perhaps north-central KY and far southwestern OH later this afternoon and early evening. The Enhanced risk has been expanded slightly eastward to account for the damaging wind threat with this convection.
We will be keeping you informed.
