We’ll be under a slight risk of severe storms overnight, with the most likely timing for storms between midnight and 6am. Damaging winds are most likely, but isolated tornadoes and hail can’t be ruled out. Southwest Indiana including Evansville is under a moderate severe risk.
In addition to the severe threat, there’s also a flood threat. 1-2″ of rain could cause some street flooding and rising rivers are likely. Since our ground is already saturated, flooding in the usual spots is possible. A FLOOD WATCH runs from 7pm to 11am.
Temperatures top out in the low to mid 60s today (the record is 66 set in 2002) with the warmth lasting into the wee hours of the morning along with the storms. Behind the storms and cold front, temps will drop much of the day tomorrow.
Tomorrow’s morning temp around 8am will probably be around 59…then we’ll fall into the 30s by late afternoon. There could be some passing rain showers that turn to snow showers as the colder air works in. That leads to a bitter end to the week. Some light snow is possible Saturday, then we warm up again.
Some tips for tonight: clear out your storm drains today before the heavy rain arrives, and before you go to bed, make sure your weather radio is on to alert you if any warnings are issued while you’re asleep.
