Severe Weather Risk Tonight From the Ozarks to the Ohio Valley
The Storm Prediction Center is watching an area in the mid-section of the country from the Ozark Mountains to the Lower Ohio Valley for a risk of severe thunderstorms tonight. The chance for tornadoes and strong winds is low, but there is a slightly higher threat for large hail.
Storms have been slow to develop so far this afternoon due to warm air aloft. As a low pressure center moves eastward along a stalled front near the Great Lakes, storms will likely develop ahead of a weak trough. Isolated severe cells are possible through this evening into the overnight.
On Tuesday, the trough and a cold front will slide to the south and east through the rest of the Ohio Valley and into the Tennessee Valley. Isolated severe storms may occur from Alabama to Ohio from the late morning into the afternoon.
On Wednesday, upper level dynamics begin to weaken. There is a marginal risk for severe storms ahead of the cold front as it pushes into the Southeast.
