...Strong to Severe Storms Possible Thursday Afternoon...
...Periods of Gusty Winds Today and Thursday...
A strong low pressure system will move out of the Central Plains
into the Upper Midwest Thursday. Ahead of this storm, breezy
conditions will develop across Kentucky and southern Indiana this
afternoon. Winds from the south will gust to 35 to 40 mph this
afternoon in areas west of I-65.
This system will continue pushing against higher pressure off the
eastern U.S. coast Thursday and cause gusty south winds, with
peak gusts...outside of thunderstorms...likely in the 40 to 45 mph
Then expect new storms to develop Thursday afternoon and form
into a line by evening. The afternoon storms could produce
damaging winds, isolated tornadoes, and hail as well as frequent
cloud to ground lightning and brief heavy rainfall. Now is a good
time to check your methods for receiving warnings and have a plan
of action for what you would do in case a warning is issued.
