Severe Thunderstorms Possible Late This Evening and Overnight

Low pressure moving from Minnesota to Illinois today will drag a warm front northward across central Kentucky late this afternoon into early evening.  Scattered showers have developed near this front, and a few thunderstorms cannot be ruled out. 

This evening the scattered storms will congeal into a larger area of showers and storms that will primarily affect southern Indiana and northern Kentucky through midnight, and then exit the Blue Grass after midnight. The primary threat from any storms this evening will be large hail, with wind gusts a secondary threat. We also cannot rule out an isolated tornado or two, especially near the warm front early this evening.

Since these storms will be most numerous after dark, please make sure to set your NOAA All-Hazards Weather Radios to "alert mode" before going to bed tonight.  For frequencies for area weather radios, please click here.
