We're tracking more active weather that's expected to hit our area early to late afternoon. All eyes are on a cold front moving in from the northwest. It looks as though some of the storms embedded within this line of rainfall may produce both wind gusts in excess of 40 or 50 mph along with pockets of large hail. As a result, the Storm Prediction Center of America has placed the majority of the Tri-State under a "1" on the Threat index for this afternoon and early evening. Our far southwestern communities are under a Slight Risk "2" - those communities include portions of Illinois (Saline, Hamilton, Gallatin, White, Hardin Counties) and Kentucky (Union, Crittenden, Caldwell Counties).
