Despite the fact that temperatures will be on a gradual rise over the next couple of days (which I’m not sure anyone will complain about), it will fuel shower and thunderstorm activity on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Fortunately, Tuesday doesn’t look like a complete wash out, scattered shower and thunderstorm clusters are expected to affect our westernmost counties tomorrow morning and the areas north of Evansville tomorrow evening.
As for Wednesday, a quiet, mild afternoon will give way to an advancing line of showers and storms reaching our westernmost counties shortly after dinnertime. Some of the storms embedded within that broken line of storms could produce small hail and strong winds; as a result, the Storm Prediction Center has placed the entirety of the Tri-State under a Marginal Risk for Severe Weather for Wednesday evening.
It appears as though the threat of Severe Weather will linger come Thursday as well; in their preliminary outlook for Thursday, the SPC has indicated that conditions will be conducive to the production of potentially Severe storms from Southern Michigan to Central Texas. In the middle? Us. The latest model data suggests that early Thursday afternoon could be a little bumpy, though the exact timing and placement of those anticipated storms remains a bit murky this far out.
