It isn't out of the question that we could see a few severe thunderstorms this afternoon across parts of southern Illinois and western Kentucky.
The Storm Prediction Center has the above mentioned areas under a "Slight Risk" in their latest Day 1 Outlook. The outlook runs through 7am Sunday.
The main threat will be large hail and damaging winds.
In order for there to be a few stronger/severe thunderstorms, we will need to get rid of some of the cloud cover left over from morning showers. If we can get some sunshine in the area, that will allow the atmosphere to destabilize.
Vacation is over and I'll be heading in to work in a couple of hours.
