A surface low pressure and corresponding cold front are triggering more strong to severe storms across parts of the Midwest today with heavy downpours and large hail being reported north of Memphis, TN. A Severe T-Storm Watch is in place until later this evening.
The energy with this system will continue to slide east overnight tonight and be the providing focus for severe weather for Monday afternoon for some major cities in the Ohio Valley.
Major cities such as Indianapolis, Cincinnati and Columbus are included in a slight risk (yellow shaded area) for severe storms indicating all modes of severe weather will be possible. This means numerous severe storms containing large hail, damaging winds and a few isolated tornadoes will be likely by the afternoon hours on Monday.
Stay weather alert!
