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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Isolated thunderstorms moving northeast between 50 and 60 mph
early this morning will produce marginal to damaging hail through
daybreak over parts of Southeast Missouri, Southern Illinois,
West Kentucky, and Southwest Indiana. Secondary hazards will be
frequent lightning and locally heavy rain. An isolated strong wind
gust over 40 mph cannot be ruled out.

There will likely be a lull in the strong to severe thunderstorms
late this morning and into the early afternoon. There may be
multiple regions of storm development, leading to more than one
opportunity for severe weather through tonight. The first time
period will be late Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday evening, then
again overnight, as a cold front moves across the area.

All severe weather modes will be possible, including large hail,
damaging winds and tornadoes. If certain parameters come together,
we cannot rule out a strong tornado or two from southeast
Missouri, into southern Illinois and far west Kentucky. Storm
motion should be east northeast around 50 mph.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

A lingering chance of strong to severe storms is possible early
Wednesday morning across West Kentucky and part of Southwest
Indiana. Damaging winds and heavy rainfall will be the primary

Otherwise, no severe weather is expected for the remainder of the
outlook period.


Skywarn spotter activation will likely be needed tonight and early
Wednesday morning.
