Areas affected...southwest Ohio into eastern Kentucky and West



Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely


Valid 170556Z - 170830Z


Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent


SUMMARY...A cluster of storms will likely persist tonight as it

moves out of Ohio and into eastern Kentucky and West Virginia.

Marginal hail or locally gusty winds are expected


DISCUSSION...As of 06Z, a cluster of storms exists over northern IN. These storms have been expanding in coverage overall, with sporadic small hail cores. Given the orientation of winds aloft, this cluster is likely to turn southeast as it continues into KY and WV. The western fringe of this activity in closer proximity to the stronger instability may be capable of occasional marginal hail.
