Evansville weather forecast includes severe weather on Tuesday


If it feels like the weather has been quiet lately, you’re right. But that could change Tuesday, when there’s a chance of severe thunderstorms in the Tri-State.

The National Weather Service says several of the needed ingredients for strong storms could come together in the Mississippi and Ohio river valleys. And while the best chance of a tornado outbreak is well south of the Evansville area, damaging winds and large hail will be possible here.

A strong cold front will move into the region Tuesday, with scattered chances for thunderstorms in the afternoon as the front clashes with warm, muggy air moving north from the Gulf of Mexico.
