Temperatures in Warren County reached 94 today this afternoon as an upper level ridge made its way over the area from the southwest. Winds from the southwest at 10-15 mph will continue to usher in warmer temperatures tonight as the low temperature will only dip to around 75 degrees. A threat for storms exist late tonight as a dangerous cluster of storms over northern Illinois and northern Indiana will weaken as they move southeast. The Storm Prediction Center has placed Warren County on the edge of the slight risk for severe weather tonight as this weakening MCS moves into southern Kentucky. The main threats with these storms will be damaging winds and hail. Heavy rain is not too much of a concern as model guidance indicates precipitation totals around a tenth to a quarter of an inch with higher amounts possible in thunderstorms. The chance for severe weather will depend on how far south this complex of storms can hold itself together. Any strong storms associated with this complex would be isolated in nature. Due to low confidence in severe weather late tonight and early Thursday, have decided to hold off on going on alert status and will monitor the situation closely. These showers and storms should move over the area later tonight after 1 A.M. A cold front will move across the area Thursday morning possibly causing a few showers to pop up in the morning as well
