The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 350
SUMMARY...Greatest severe-weather threat (primarily with damaging
winds) will continue to spread across southwest into south-central
IN and parts of western and northwestern KY early this morning. The
overall severe-weather threat should continue to diminish across far
DISCUSSION...Trends in lightning data and fast storm movement
(east-southeast at 40-45 kt) with storms that have moved into
southwest IN suggest a continued severe-weather threat across this
portion of WW 350 through 10-12Z. If forward motion is maintained
through 1030-11Z, portions of northwest KY (Breckinridge and Meade
Counties) to Harrison County IN may need to be added to this watch.
The ongoing storms in southwest IN are moving through the axis of
strongest instability, while most-unstable CAPE weakens with
eastward extent into central KY. This observation and potential for
further boundary layer stabilization early this morning could
eventually limit the severe-weather threat east of WW 350.
Meanwhile, the decrease in storm movement and diminishing lightning
trends across southern IL suggests the overall severe-weather threat
in this portion of WW 350 should continue to wane.
