Late Evening Update To Severe Weather Potential
The tops of thunderstorms give us a good idea at the severe weather threat. When we see the tops of the storms getting higher, then our concern for severe weather goes up. When the tops of the t-storms fall, then the severe weather threat gets lower. Over the last two hours we have seen t-storm tops drop from 38,000 feet to about 29,000 feet max now, so the threat of severe weather is getting lower and lower. Notice almost all the reds are gone from the radar imagery.
There are a few lightning strikes with the storms moving into Bedford, IN right now.
The strongest storm right now is heading down I-64 near English, IN moving east at about 30 - 40 mph.
Here is a 3D shot of this cluster west of English. Notice the tops are just about 29,000 - 30,000 feet.
The intensity of the line continues to flatten out. We have a couple of clusters that may produce winds between 40 - 45 mph, but nothing shows any sign of going severe at this point. I will continue to watch things closely.
