We got a pretty full dose of winter late in the game this year, with those three winter storms pummeling the tri-state in mid-February.

It's been pretty calm since then, with only the occasional shower or heavy downpour. But it looks like the break's over. Spring is here and so is severe weather.

During my on-air chats with Eyewitness News Chief Meteorologist Wayne Hart the last few days, we've been talking about the severe weather threat coming our way this Thursday. And the chances we'll experience it have only gotten stronger.

Here's the National Weather Service's hazardous outlook for Thursday through Tuesday:

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are expected Thursday into
Thursday evening. Severe storms will be possible throughout the
region mainly in the afternoon and early evening, but the threat
will be greatest over west Kentucky into extreme southeast
Missouri. Damaging winds, large hail, and tornadoes will all be
possible. Locally heavy rainfall will also be a concern.

Thunderstorms are forecast Saturday night, and again Tuesday night,
with lightning and heavy rain the main storm hazards expected.

And here's what the NWS' Storm Prediction Center's map looks like for Thursday:

During winter, I believed I jinxed us by saying it had been so long since we'd gotten any appreciable snowfall. Well, I've also recently mentioned how our severe weather seasons in the past few years have been quiet. I should keep my mouth shut. Here it is late March and we have a slight to enhanced risk for severe weather.

Stay safe and stay tuned.
