Paducah, KY – Showers and thunderstorms are forecasted to impact southeast Missouri, southern Illinois, and far west Kentucky this afternoon. The National Weather Service in Paducah, Kentucky, reports that the storms will extend across the rest of west Kentucky and southwest Indiana by late tonight.

According to the National Weather Service, scattered showers and storms are expected through Tuesday evening, with numerous showers and storms moving through the region late Tuesday night into Wednesday. The weather pattern is driven by the approach and passage of a cold front, which is anticipated to bring the heaviest rain from west to east late Wednesday afternoon and evening.

The forecast indicates severe thunderstorm chances are low, but an isolated strong to severe storm remains possible. Areas such as Cape Girardeau, Poplar Bluff, and Carbondale are expected to see the highest chances of precipitation. Daytime highs will range from the low 80s to high 80s, with overnight lows in the mid to upper 60s.

Residents are advised to stay updated with local weather reports and take necessary precautions. The potential for heavy rainfall could lead to localized flooding, and gusty winds may cause power outages. The National Weather Service urges residents to secure outdoor items and be prepared for sudden changes in weather conditions.
