It's almost hard to believe it is the month of October, and late October at that, after setting a record high of 90° today. This beat the record of 89° set back in 2005.
I hope to bring relief and letting everyone know that we aren't expecting a major outbreak of severe storms. However, a few isolated severe storms are possible. We saw that earlier today across southern Indiana and northern Kentucky as tornado warned storms brought damaging winds and hail. They also put down lots of water. Flash Flood Warnings are in place there until after midnight.
It's a powerful front, that's for sure! It's also very dynamic in nature, but the atmosphere has limited instability to work with for widespread severe weather. But as mentioned, there is a minimal threat to see a few severe storms firing up. The storm prediction center has portions of the area under a Marginal Risk for storms tomorrow.
In essence, here's a break down of what to remember.
- Clouds around in the morning
- Storms increasing during the afternoon
- A few could be severe, but not widespread
- Everyone should get in on some beneficial rainfall
- Then comes the big time chill for the weekend
I hope that helps and answers a lot of the questions for most of you, but of course, you can always feel free to comment or shoot me an e-mail to email@example.com and I'll be able to discuss more with you.
Have a fantastic evening, stay dry, and I'll see some of you tomorrow on 13 News at 5, 6, and 10!
