Severe storms possible Sunday afternoon or evening

From Mike Keltner, Director
Adair Co. Emergency Management

The National Weather Service in Louisville, KY, has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for portions of south central Indiana and Central Kentucky that includes Adair and all surrounding counties:
Expect more clusters of thunderstorms today, with strong to severe storms possible this afternoon into this evening. Damaging winds will be the main threat, with large hail and locally heavy rain also possible. We can't rule out a tornado either. The Enhanced Risk (Level 3 of 5) is driven mainly by the higher probability of damaging wind gusts, rather than the magnitude of any severe hazard.

While any time today is fair game for thunderstorms, the most likely time frame for strong or severe storms will be from 1pmCT to 9pmCT.
