These storms are expected to continue to move to the east-southeast throughout the rest of the evening and overnight hours. The latest HRRR model suggest the storms will move into the Marshall County area by 3 AM. However, the model also suggest an isolated storm could move through as early as midnight.

A few of these storms could be strong to severe. Damaging wind gusts, heavy rain, and lightning are the main concerns. Isolated hail also cannot be ruled out. The overall severe threat is very low, but not zero. The Storm Prediction Center has outlined areas to the northwest in a “Marginal” risk (level 1 out 5) risk for severe weather.

It should also be noted that the radar site in Paducah, Kentucky is down, thus we’ll have to rely on Evansville and Hopkinsville radar sites. The Storm Prediction Center is monitoring southern Illinois and southeast Missouri now.
