The Storm Prediction Center has placed areas along and West of Interstate 65 under an Enhanced Risk for severe weather. With the remaining parts of Southern Indiana in a slight risk.
The rain moving through this morning should mostly be gone by lunchtime, however, the far eastern counties may hold onto the rain a little longer into the afternoon. The longer the dry time and perhaps more sunlight and warming of temperatures will only fuel the atmosphere of energy. This will then give more energy for the storms coming in tonight to work from causing a better chance for severe storms. This setup does look to be the case especially in the Enhanced risk zone this afternoon and early evening.
As it stands now storms look to arrive late this evening around 10pm CDT./11pm EDT. and continue through early tomorrow morning. So make sure you have a way to receive weather alerts that will wake you up so you don't miss the alerts!!
All modes of severe weather are possible with damaging winds and hail being primary threats. A small threat for an isolated tornado does exist. Flooding may also be an issue as some storms may bring heavy downpours which could especially lead to trouble in low lying areas. Never Drive Through High Water!! (Turn Around, Don't Drown!)
Severe weather will still be possible tomorrow. Primarily in the early morning hours. The threat will be less as the Storm Prediction Center has all of Southern Indiana in a marginal risk. After the late night storms tonight it's likely that the atmosphere will be worked over causing storms to be on a weakening phase as they progress early tomorrow morning.
Main threats would be damaging winds and hail with a low threat for tornados. Best chance for severe weather Tuesday would be South and East of the Ohio River.
Be weather aware tonight & tomorrow morning! Have a way to get alerts that'll wake you up so you don't miss the alerts!!
Updates will post as necessary!
