The Storm Prediction Center has placed extreme southeast Indiana in an Enhanced Risk, and southwest to east central Indiana in a Slight Risk of severe weather for the afternoon and evening hours today. The main hazards at this time will be damaging winds, large hail, and the possibility of tornadoes.
Scattered thunderstorms capable of damaging wind, hail, and tornadoes, is possible for areas in the Ohio Valley. The low pressure system that brought Wednesday’s severe threat, will shift towards the south during the day, along with a frontal boundary. Ongoing shower and thunderstorm activity in this region will shift towards the east/southeast through the morning hours. From these storms, a remnant outflow boundary will remain into the afternoon hours, which will likely interact with an unstable air mass featuring dew points in the 60s and 70s, and a west/northwest flow aloft. Showers and thunderstorms should redevelop during the afternoon to evening time frame.
