Severe weather is possible again today as a strong Spring storm system continues to move eastward. Today’s Enhanced Risk stretches from Indiana and Ohio into north Alabama. This includes Indianapolis, IN, Columbus and Cincinnati, OH, Nashville, TN, and Louisville, KY.
All modes of severe weather will be possible with any storms that develop. The previously defined Enhanced Risk area includes the highest threat for an isolated tornado today.
There is already a Tornado Watch in place for parts of the Ohio Valley. A tornado reportedly just missed the National Weather Service office in Paducah, KY this morning. Damage was reported just to the southwest of the area near Lovelaceville.
