    Storms possible on Friday 6/21/19

    Isolated to scattered severe storms will be possible again on Friday for portions of southern Indiana and Kentucky. The area for Kentucky is mainly west of I-75.

    A moist and strongly unstable air mass will be in place over portions of the Ohio Valley. However, early morning thunderstorms may have a large influence on the overall situation. this is leading to moderate forecast uncertainty.

    Check back for updates later today.

    By Saturday, I hope to be 600-1000 miles west of here. That is, if I'm ever able to pack the stinkin' vehicle by Friday afternoon.

    Thursday afternoon update

    There is now a category 2 Slight Risk Area for parts of Kentucky from the I-65 corridor back westward. A category 1 Marginal Risk Area exists from I-65 to just east of the I-75 corridor. Hail will likely be the predominant risk, though locally damaging winds and a couple of tornadoes may also occur, with risk lingering into the evening before diminishing over time.

    Thursday evening update

    The following is the HRRR Ohio Valley Radar. It is from 3-11 pm EDT Friday. It shows storms form about the Land between the Lakes area to the I-75 corridor. A second round could reach the Cincinnati/NKY area around the 10-11 pm time slot. All of the threats look to be in the mix. Hail, damaging winds and a better chance to see a tornado or two.

    We are supposed to be leaving NKY tomorrow afternoon between 3 and 5, and will be heading down 71 to Louisville and then taking 64 west into Illinois. Are we going to be heading into the teeth of that first big cell coming up the Ohio River valley?

    I still working on this mornings update. You may run into scattered showers and storms with the strongest ones being in Illinois around 7 pm EDT and them moving into southern Indiana around 8 or 9 pm EDT.

    Friday morning update

    As of this morning, there is some uncertainty on the timing of the storms for later today. It should be a dry day for Friday. A complex of storms will move into southwest Indiana this evening and push southeast across Kentucky later tonight. A few of the storms could produce damaging winds as the main threat.

    As soon as I can I will post another update. Storms could refire up on Saturday so it seems the wet pattern we are in will continue after the break we get today.

    @CincySportsFan

    Monitor the weather for your trip this evening. There is now an Category 3 Enhance Risk Area for strong to severe storms for portions of western Indiana and central and southern Illinois.
