Severe weather is in the forecast for today.
An enhanced risk of severe weather is already in place for areas like Nashville, Lexington and Chicago. This means scattered severe thunderstorms will be possible.
Once we roll into Thursday afternoon, the chance of severe weather sparks back up. A line of strong storms starts to form again, and everything from damaging winds to isolated tornadoes will be possible.
This line of storms will stay organized until Friday morning.
Heavy rain will also accompany these strong storms. Up to 4 inches of rain will be possible for some cities over the next 24 hours.
Expect minor river flooding and ponding on roads to be occurring throughout the day.
