Severe Weather Predicted Tonight
By Chad Lampe
Murray, KY – National Weather Service Forecasters say tonight's severe weather will most likely arrive in far western Kentucky between 8:00 p.m. and 1:00 a.m. The storm system ahead of a cold front will move from southwest to north east. The storm poses threat of tornadoes and large hail in Northwest Tennessee. Western Kentucky and Southern Illinois residents can expect high damaging winds and torrential rain.
There will also be a good chance for flash flooding overnight and into the morning hours. The storm system will move quickly, around 50 miles per hour. This night time storm poses a greater safety risk than daytime storms simply because it will impact our area while most are sleeping.
Forecasters say to test your weather radios and be sure they have fresh batteries.
