early afternoon update: western sections

by

A mcs has moved southeast this afternoon into western ky and southern Indiana. Over the last few hours the intensity of the line has been for decreasing coverage of strong storms. However in the past hour or so with a fair amount of instability the complex is reorganizing as it slowly moves southeast toward the I-65 region. Strong storms with winds to 50 mph and locally hvy rains are the main threats with the complex. Further strengthening may again allow for storms to become severe which would require a watch to be issued by the spc for the circled region. However no severe storms are present along this line now. The line should reach the circled area between 2:30 and 4:30 pm ct.

    storm coverage has decreased late this afternoon. scattered storms near I-65 will work across the region this evening. An isolated strong storm can’t be ruled out.
