NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE

From the National Weather Service for November 5, 2017:

Strong thunderstorms are moving into the northwest portion of the Quad State area. The storms have a history of producing very large hail and damaging winds. Much of the Quad State area is under at tornado watch until 10 PM this evening. Please remain alert for rapidly changing conditions. The storms are in advance of a strong cold front moving into the area, with much colder temperatures behind the system. The area of storms will be along and south of the Ohio River by 9 PM, but not out of the Kentucky Pennyrile until near midnight.

Scattered thunderstorms will be possible early this evening over southeast Missouri, southern Illinois and the Purchase Area of Kentucky. Individual storms will possess a large hail and tornado threat to go along with damaging winds. The storms are expected to eventually form into one or more lines later in the evening, resulting in primarily a damaging wind threat. Torrential rains may briefly tax drainage systems, but the storms should be moving fast enough to prevent a major flash flood concern tonight. The storms should move southeast of the region around 3 AM Monday morning.
