The Storm Prediction Center has a small section of Southwestern Indiana in an Enhanced Risk (level 3 of 5) for severe weather. Damaging winds and a few tornados are possible. These threats remain the case all throughout Southern Indiana but as the storms progress West to East the storms will likely weaken. This explains where the Slight Risk and Marginal Risk come as noted on the image below.
The Northwestern and Central parts of Southern Indiana is in the Slight Risk (level 2 of 5) zone so the storms may hold together long enough to produce some severe weather activity, but then looking further North and East the risk drops to a Marginal (level 1 of 5) which is the area least likely to see severe storms. Bottomline don't let your guard down no matter where you are. Have a way to get weather alerts that will wake you up!
Timing: Storms will enter Southwestern Indiana after 6PM CDT./7PM EDT. and continue East arriving just West of Interstate 65 between 10 and 11PM EDT. and East of I-65 after 12AM EDT. The threat for severe weather should be cleared by 2AM CDT./3AM EDT.
A Tornado WATCH remains in effect for Daviess, Gibson, Knox, Pike, Posey, Spencer, Vanderburgh and Warrick through 10PM CDT. Tonight. We also have a Wind ADVISORY in effect for the ENTIRE area through 6AM EDT. Thursday for 20-30mph winds gusting as high as 50mph.
Reminder: NEVER go outdoors during a Tornado WARNING as chances are likely you won't see anything as tornadoes can be rain wrapped and even more unlikely to see after dark. Instead it's best to seek shelter immediately in your tornado safe place.
