A strong low pressure system will impact the Wabash Valley today, bringing in the potential of strong to severe storms during the late afternoon and evening hours. The Storm Prediction Center has placed the entire Valley is under a “slight risk” of severe storms.
This afternoon (through 5 p.m. EDT): Pre-frontal storms will be rather scattered in nature and push through this afternoon. We will then see a break in the rain through 5 p.m. before the main line of storms moves in from the west.
Highest threat of severe weather is approximately 6 p.m. – 11 p.m. EDT: Thunderstorms will be likely along a squall line moving from west to east throughout the evening hours. There is a threat of damaging wind gusts in excess of 60 mph along with brief spin-ups within the line itself.
After 11 p.m. EDT: The main line will exit to east and lingering rain showers and storms will continue into the overnight.
Winds will remain strong gusting as high as 30 mph at times throughout the day and this evening.
