(UNDATED) - According to information released earlier this morning from the National Weather Service, the timing of the severe storms moving into the Kentuckiana area has shifted from between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. to between 6 p.m. and 11 p.m.

Scattered thunderstorms are likely to develop this afternoon across western Kentucky and middle Tennesse and track northeast across central Kentucky and southeastern Indiana through the afternoon and evening.

Scattered storms will develop and quickly track this way, becoming strong to severe with possible large hail and strong winds.

Discrete cells and line segments will continue to move across the region between 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. bringing strong storms into parts of the WBIW listening area.

The highest threat in this storm is for large hail greater than 1" likely with any severe storm. Isolated instances of hail greater than 2 inches possible in moderate risk area.

The NWS said tornadoes are possible with any supercell.

Damaging winds of greater than 60 mph possible with any severe storm across the region.

As a result of the original timing of the storm to be between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. in the Washington County area, Salem and Eastern Schools have made the decision to dismiss school early today.
