A Line of severe storms will move through Kentuckiana between 1-9am.

West: 1-3 a.m.

Metro (I-65): 3-7 a.m.

East: 5-9 a.m.

The Storm Prediction Center has placed all of our area under a Slight Risk of severe storms, with a Moderate Risk over western Kentucky and southwestern Indiana.  It is fairly rare to see a Moderate Risk area that close in January. 

The next map shows the areas with the highest tornado threat, which is just to our southwest.  We do have a small chance of a weak, spin-up tornado.

The damaging wind threat extends over a greater area.  All of our area has a chance of damaging winds in excess of 60-70 mph.

Here's a look at Futurecast and the storm threats below.
