Wind and storms on the way

Strong to severe thunderstorms should hit after midnight

> SOUTHERN INDIANA — It’s going to get windy and then wet in Southern Indiana.

A wind advisory has been issued for Clark and Floyd counties — as well as other parts of Southern Indiana and Kentucky — from 4 p.m. today through 4 p.m. Wednesday by the National Weather Service in Louisville.

The winds will be part of a cold front moving into the area, which will bring a 100 percent chance of precipitation, including strong and severe thunderstorms.

“At this time, the best chance for [storms] will be from midnight to 6 a.m. Wednesday,” a hazardous weather outlook posting from the NWS reads. “Given the rather strong wind fields, the main threat from the thunderstorms will be damaging winds. However, an isolated tornado or two cannot be ruled out.”

Sustained south to southwesterly winds of 15 mph to 25 mph are in the forecast, with gusts up to 40 mph.

On Wednesday, the chance of storms will continue through about 1 p.m., with showers in the forecast for later in the day. In all, more than an inch of rain is predicted to fall. Wednesday’s high will be about 60.

Colder weather will return Thursday, with a forecast high of 34, and Friday will be even colder, with a high of 27 and a low of 21.
