Temps will surge into the upper 50s and lower 60s on Friday behind powerhouse southwesterly winds. I keep pushing my forecast temps up for Friday...would not be surprised to see Madisonville strike the upper 60s on Friday.
Most viewers...not all...welcome the brief warm-up. However, the SPC is showing our area in the potential line for a few thunderstorms. This could get upgraded to a slight risk...especially to our west. Severe weather unlikely but a few stronger storms will be possible.
Not a lot of wind shear minus a strong cold front...up to 60-knots at 18k Friday at noon. The warmer air from the southwest will pump up the temps.
Down to 12,ooo feet the winds up to 50-knots for southwest Indiana/western Kentucky.
RPM model Friday at 4:00 p.m. Scattered thunderstorms...mainly north of I-64. Storms will be nonlinear...but a few isolated strong cells possible. In my view, any warnings would be severe thunderstorm warnings.
Winds are still robust down to 6,000 feet
RPM model at 6:00p.m. Friday...a few storms firing over Evansville/Henderson. The greatest severe weather potential will set up west of Interstate 57. With all this rain, flash flooding may be a threat.
