Watching the severe storm threat

Good Wednesday to one and all.  A surge of heat and humidity is pushing into the southern Ohio Valley today and will add fuel for storms to develop. Scattered showers and storms today will be replaced by a cluster of storms that races into the region this evening and overnight.

That’s when our severe weather threat will be the highest. Setups like this can often produce a swath of damaging winds, and that will be the primary focus. Large hail and isolated tornadoes will be possible, with the best chance of severe weather across the northern half of the state.

The storms out there today will be centered more across the eastern and northern parts of the state. That’s going to make for a tough temperature call. Upper 80s to near 90 is possible for many areas, and the southwest should see the low 90s.

A cold front sweeps across the region late tonight and early Thursday, and that will usher in cooler and drier air for the end of the week.
