Areas affected...western Kentucky...far southern Indiana
Concerning...Tornado Watch 60...
Valid 031744Z - 031945Z
The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 60 continues.
SUMMARY...A corridor of tornadoes and significant wind damage is
likely over the next several hours.
DISCUSSION...An arcing line of storms is strengthening near a deep
surface low, with 977 mb measured at the PAH observation at 17Z.
Drying aloft is aiding clearing and surface heating now ahead of
this line, which will further increase low-level instability. Shear
profiles are extreme with 0-1 SRH over 500 m2/s2.
Both tornadoes and swaths of hurricane-force winds are expected with
this line as it rapidly moves east coincident with the low. Enhanced
lift where this line of storms intersects the warm front may be a
favored area for a strong tornado as well.
