6/16 - 11:30pm - Severe Risk Tomorrow in the Ohio Valley

An area of storms is expected to restrengthen south of a warm front in Illinois tomorrow morning as it moves southeastward. By the afternoon these storms should cross into the Lower Ohio Valley and affect the Louisville, Lexington, and Cincinnati areas. Some of these storms will have the capability of producing large hail and high winds. They also should remain linear or bunched together throughout the day due to a lack of wind shear, so the tornado threat will accordingly be low. Not everyone in the region will see storms though as coverage may remain low. The Storm Prediction Center's Slight Risk for severe weather stays north of the Tennessee border (which looks about right given what short range models are showing), so Indiana and Kentucky will be the target for this event. This won't be a big severe weather risk, but it's certainly something to keep an eye on tomorrow afternoon.

Storms (possibly severe) will be possible on Saturday and Sunday as well, so be ready for more storms if you're in Kentucky or Tennessee.
