Severe Weather Risk On The Rise

From Jude Redfield...

    Plenty of ingredients come together to produce a solid chance for severe storms on our Thursday. Heat, excessive moisture & ample wind energy headline the severe storm recipe that looks to make for a turbulent Thursday in spots.  The primary threats include damaging straight-line wind and damaging hail. If more than one round of storms goes up some localized flooding could develop.

    I feel the highest potential for severe weather is centered up on Kentuckiana. (see map below)

    At this point the exact timing of storm formation is a bit fuzzy. As temps warm to near 90 on Thursday expect development during the afternoon. The main trigger (upper level low pressure) arrives during the night. This could mean two rounds of storms, one with heating of the day and the other at night.

    We haven't had much severe weather this season so don't let your guard down on our Thursday potential. Keep up to date with the weather team on this one! -Jude Redfield-
