More severe storms, possible tornadoes tonight

Share

Now we turn the tables and await our next round of weather, severe weather! We'll drop into the upper 50s for most of the day, and a cool northwest breeze will make it feel even colder. Temperatures only rising into the upper 30s (4 degrees Celsius), with that wind making it feel colder. Eventually they will push towards areas east of Austin before midnight. If that weakening occurs we may still see some rain, but the storms would arrive with the front later this evening. We could see a brief break in the rain Tuesday afternoon.

While a severe weather outbreak isn't expected this evening, any storm that does become severe has the potential to produce wind gusts in excess of 60 miles per hour and large hail. A secondary (but certainly nonzero) tornado threat will be carried through Kentuckiana with these storms. This is not to scare, but to alert you to be aware of this potential, small as it might be.

Now we are seeing occasional showers from a warm front surging through the area.

The Storm Prediction Center has upgraded our severe threat to Moderate for this afternoon and evening.

Forecasters said damaging straight-line winds would be the biggest threat, while large hail and isolated tornadoes are also possible. We are under a Wind Advisory from 12PM today through 10PM this evening.

Frost will be possible Wednesday night into Thursday morning and again Saturday night into Sunday.

Best advice Wednesday, keep the coat handy! The balmy and muggy conditions before a severe weather event come from the dew points and moisture that lies ahead of the actual front.
