Paducah, KY – Southern Illinois and Indiana are bracing for sporadic thunderstorms Wednesday afternoon, which may bring large hail and damaging winds. The US National Weather Service in Paducah, KY, has indicated that while the risk for tornadoes has decreased, severe weather remains a concern for the region.

According to the National Weather Service, the thunderstorms could be particularly intense if they develop in the afternoon heat. A stalled front will keep a persistent chance of showers and thunderstorms through the holiday weekend. The potential for severe weather is present, with the main hazards being large hail, damaging winds, and heavy rain that could lead to flash flooding.

Sunday poses a significant risk, with the possibility of more widespread severe weather. Residents planning outdoor activities should have a shelter plan in place and remain aware of weather updates. The combination of instability, shear, and moisture on Sunday could support severe thunderstorms, with flash flooding also being a concern due to the anticipated heavy rainfall.

The timing of these storms is still uncertain, making it crucial for residents to monitor local weather updates. The National Weather Service will provide ongoing updates as the situation develops, urging residents to remain vigilant and prepared for potential severe weather throughout the holiday weekend.
