NWS warns of Wednesday weather

According to the National Weather Service in Paducah, the entire area of western Kentucky is included in a slight risk of severe thunderstorms Wednesday. An enhanced risk of severe storms appears to be for a portion of the area south of Princeton.

At this time, the main areas of concern is for isolated damaging wind gusts over southeast Missouri between daybreak and noon, and more intense thunderstorms (supercells) developing shortly after noon just west of the Land Between the Lakes, then working northeast during the middle and late afternoon. This second area has the potential for thunderstorms to produce damaging winds and hail, as well as isolated tornadoes.

Remember, tomorrow is a big travel day, so many will be on the road.
