I just wanted to give you all a quick update on Tuesday’s storms. The latest data shows the that storms on Tuesday could become quite strong, or even severe. Large hail and damaging winds appear the main threats but there is enough “spin” in the air to lead some of us to believe there may be a slight tornado risk. I’ll keep an eye on new data as it comes in today and tonight and update you, as needed.
The threat would be Tuesday evening. The timeframe would appear to be from 3:00-9:00 pm. I’ll get more specific with that time as more data becomes available. Storms will be moving out of the northwest, from Kentucky and Indiana. I’ll be tracking those storms on Tuesday as they move our way.
At this time, the Storm Prediction Center has our area in the marginal risk for severe storms. This is the lowest of the severe weather risk categories. The threat increases as you go north into Kentucky.
I’ll keep an eye on on it!
