A strong line of strong to severe thunderstorms has moved into southwestern IN and western KY during the past hour. Numerous reports of damaging winds have come from MO/IL. What’s left of the squall line should pass through Jefferson County between 8 and 9 P.M. The storms will be much weaker by that time because it’ll be moving into an area of significantly lower moisture. The air over the western third of KY and extreme SW IN is very humid and primed for severe winds over the next few hours AND extremely heavy rains after midnight. Meanwhile, the really rich moisture will not reach us so storm strength and rain totals will not be excessive.
Some of the lighter rain from this system could linger into the mid-morning hours tomorrow, however.
