There is a SLIGHT RISK of severe weather viewing area-wide with ENHANCED RISK right up to the borders of our southern counties of Fountain & Montgomery.
Round of rain & a few storms will pass now through afternoon. An isolated severe storm with hail risk is possible. Locally-heavy rainfall will occur.
Break will ensue this evening with windy, warm weather & even potentially a few breaks in the clouds.
So, with ENHANCED just south of our area, best severe threat is south of us.
However, give the parameters & the SLIGHT RISK, an isolated brief tornado, couple severe gusts &/or hail are possible.
Storms south of our area may disrupt the best inflow of unstable air, resulting in a decreased tornado magnitude risk.
Locally-heavy rainfall is also possible.
Time frame is generally 1 a.m. to 5 a.m.
I did not make it earlier, through there is still some outlying data suggesting as early as 9 p.m.
We will monitor very closely & make sure we do no need to make any last-minute tweaks.
After the storms, some clearing is possible Friday morning, followed by cold frontal passage with line of gusty low-topped showers/t'showers.
A period of gusts 40-50 mph are possible ahead of & just behind the front.
After a warm early morning, temperatures will fall rapidly in the afternoon with gusts still 30-40 mph at times (but from the northwest).
Some spotty rain/snow is possible Friday afternoon-evening as temperatures fall through the 40s to the 30s.
Lows in the 20s are likely Friday night with wind chills 10-17 with breezy to windy weather.
Weekend looks dry & chilly with 35-40 Saturday & 41-47 Sunday. Sunday will be especially cold at 22-26.
Skies will be partly cloudy overall & it will be a bit breezy.
