Thursday evening (April 2)
It’s not too often when hail is the primary ingredient in severe weather around here. But that’s the way it was this afternoon AND we could easily see another surge or two of additional Hail-makers tonight. Chances are, though, that hail won’t get as large tonight. Wind gusts should remain in the “nothing to worry about” range tonight.
Current Severe Storm Watch was issued after the storms were past, so that too is nothing to worry about locally.
A small area of t-storms approaching Evansville should be in our area between about 9 P.M. to Midnight. These have lost the help of daytime heating, so small hail seems to be the best they can do.
Later tonight, an upper air system becomes more active over the area and another surge of thunderstorms becomes likely from about 5 A.M. to 9 A.M. In spite of the late-night timing, these storms look capable of another round of hail and some gusty winds.
Additional showers/t-storms appear likely again tomorrow afternoon and evening, but severe weather does not appear to be a threat at that time.
