severe thunderstorm watch

by

favorable shear and instabilty are present over the region with abundant mositure. A front which is the triggering needed for storms is along the Ohio river. As a result the SPC has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for the entire region. The main threat locations in my view are along 1-64 near the front. Gusty winds and hail are the main threats. Already a few storms have formed and become strong to severe.
