First Alert Weather Day Thursday: What you need to know


Thursday is a First Alert Weather Day.

The Tri-State is under a slight risk for severe weather Thursday night.

But first, most of the day will be quite nice with partly cloudy skies and highs in the low 80s.

It will be windy with gusts up to 35 mph.

Starting around 4 p.m., scattered storms will push into our southeastern Indiana counties as a cold front arrives.

Several rounds of storms are expected to work from west to east across the Tri-State Thursday night.

The worst is expected between p.m. and 11 p.m.

Expect heavy downpours, lightning, and high, damaging winds.

While most of the storms will not be severe, a few could produce quarter-size hail and wind gusts up to 60 mph.

Scattered showers will linger until midnight as colder air gushes in.

The overnight low will fall to 54 degrees.

Your Friday morning drive will be dry, but chilly.

Friday's high will only reach 59 degrees.

Be sure to closely monitor the weather late afternoon and evening Thursday and be prepared for possible slowdowns during the evening commute.

Should a warning be issued for your location, you'll receive a notification on the Fox 19 NOW First Alert Weather app.
