The Storm Prediction Center is keeping an eye on our storms this morning.  This latest mesoscale discussion just came out regarding the storms in Illinois.  The SPC says they won’t likely issue a severe thunderstorms watch downstream from the current Severe Thunderstorm Watch that is still going in eastern Illinois.  We continue to monitor the early mornings because you can’t rule out some stronger or isolated severe storms.

A flash flood warning has been issued for Clay, northern Owen and southern Putnam County until 9:30 AM.  Very heavy rainfall has already been observed in this area with 1.5 to 2″ of rain already on the ground. Because this storms is moving so slowly and raining so intensely, another 1-2″ of rain could still fall in the warned area.  Brazil and Spencer are impacted by this warning.

From Brian Wilkes: Severe storms to bypass central Indiana but still a chance of a few storms early this afternoon and evening. Tornado watch hoisted in far SE Indiana and for much of eastern KY, southern OH.

Strongest storms to develop from 3 to 5 PM well south, I’m posting the new tornado watch until 9 PM and the forecast radar at 5 PM off the Hi-res computer model.
