Region still in path of severe weather for Wednesday


Exactly where the severe weather forecast to hit the region Wednesday will set up remains unclear, but storms with threats of high wind and hail increase if rain holds off until later in the afternoon, Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Jamie Simpson said.

If the rain comes by midday or early afternoon, the strongest storms may dive south of the region and work across southern Indiana into Kentucky, Simpson said Tuesday night.

In any event, the region will experience heavy rain, lots of lightning and a minor threat of flooding into early Wednesday evening.

By the time midnight rolls around, the threat of severe weather should expire, Simpson said.

High temps Wednesday will remain in the 80s.

Because of clouds expected to arrive by sunrise and thicken through Thursday morning, the high that day will reach the mid-70s. Lowering humidity will lead to afternoon sun, Simpson said.

Friday and Saturday will be sunny and less humid. Temps Friday will be in the upper 70s, and around 80 on Friday.
