On Alert: Wind & Thunderstorms

Dry Thanksgiving Day

14 First Alert 11/25

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - A vigorous area of low pressure is scheduled to bring wind, rain, and scattered thunderstorms. Strong winds will mix with moderate to heavy rain bands. There is a marginal risk for severe thunderstorms with top winds up to 60-miles an hour through early afternoon. The primary storm threats include damaging wind gusts and a brief spin-up tornado. There is enough surface wind shear, winds turning with height, to cause a spin-up tornado. High temps will surge into the lower to mid-60s behind a warm front.

In the wake of the wind and rain, dry Thanksgiving Day as high temps remain slightly above normal in the mid-50s. Mostly cloudy and less windy with a west wind 5-10 miles an hour.

Friday, partly sunny and warmer as high temps climb into the upper 50′s to 60-degrees.
