Severe Storms Possible Tonight - Friday Morning

 A cold front will approach the Midwest today.  Strong to potentially severe storms are expected to develop ahead of this front this afternoon and evening.  These storms will transition into a squall line just to our west this evening and then move through southern Indiana and central Kentucky late tonight into early Friday morningDamaging winds, small hail, and heavy rainfall will be the primary threats with any strong to severe storms.  An isolated brief tornado also is possible.

The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) Outlook below highlights the area of concern for possible severe storms today through early Friday morning.  South central Indiana and central Kentucky are under a slight risk for severe weather.  Since severe storms are expected to affect the area overnight, we highly encourage you to set your NOAA Weather Radio to alert mode so that you can be awakened in the event that a warning is issued while you are asleep.  Many severe weather fatalities occur late at night.
