A strong system will impact our area this afternoon through late tonight. Expect scattered to numerous showers/storms and some of the storms could reach severe limits. There’s a Level 3 Risk of Severe Storms for areas along and west of I-65. Damaging wind, hail, and a few tornadoes are all possible this afternoon and evening (2PM – 12AM) . So, have multiple ways of getting severe weather alerts: Weather App, NOAA Weather Radio, Watching Spectrum News1, etc.
For areas east of I-65, there’s a slightly lower risk for severe weather…but a risk for all elements of severe weather none-the-less. Again, have multiple ways of getting alerts as the threat may linger into very late tonight…and you want to be able to hear alerts if warnings are issued. Timing for storms east of I-65 will be between 4PM – 3AM.
It’ll be unseasonably warm today with upper 60s and low 70s…and a bit breezy. As today’s system moves away by tomorrow, the weather improves greatly with sunshine expected by daybreak Friday. It’ll be cooler for the last day of the workweek with seasonable highs in the mid 50s.
Your weekend brings a likely chance for rain (non-severe) on Saturday with highs in the 40s, and spotty morning showers lingering into Sunday. Yet, Sunday is the overall best “outdoor plans” day with highs in the low 50s. It warms into the 60s next week as we approach St. Patrick’s Day.
