This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of southern
Illinois, southwest Indiana, western Kentucky, and southeast

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

There is a marginal risk of severe thunderstorms through early
this evening, mainly along and north of a line from Carbondale,
Illinois, to Owensboro, Kentucky. If a storm develops and becomes
severe, damaging winds is the primary severe weather hazard
anticipated, although small hail is also possible. An isolated
tornado would not be out of the question. Otherwise, locally
heavy rainfall is the primary storm related hazard.

South to southwest winds will average 15 to 30 mph, but will gust
higher at times, into early this evening. It is possible that a
gust could reach as high as 50 to 55 mph, particularly where the
sunshine has broken through the cloud cover. However, most gusts
will be in the 30 to 40 mph range. A wind advisory is in effect
until 7 pm for the southern part of the region. Refer to the
advisory for details.

Flooding is occurring along the Green and Ohio rivers. Refer to
those warnings and statements for details.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Light snow, possibly mixed with a little sleet and freezing rain,
is expected very late Friday night and early Saturday morning. A
dusting to a couple of tenths of an inch of snow is possible
mainly in southeast Missouri and southern Illinois, but any
accumulations should melt by early afternoon.

A prolonged period of wet weather is forecast to set up over the
Ohio and Mississippi river valleys next week. The potential for
flooding will need to be monitored in the coming days as we gain a
better idea of where and exactly how much rainfall may occur.

There is a chance of thunderstorms from Monday night into Tuesday
night. Severe weather is not anticipated.

Flooding is forecast to continue along the Green and Ohio rivers.
Refer to those warnings and statements for details.


Spotters should maintain alert status and monitor the latest
forecasts for any updated information.
