The National Weather Service has placed the Tri-State at a moderate to high risk for severe weather today.

A severe weather outbreak, with significant tornadoes and widespread damaging winds, is expected over the Ohio Valley and southern Great Lakes region today and tonight.

Much of the mid-west (including Evansville) is under a wind advisory today.

In Evansville, the time frame looks like things will get bumpy between noon and 6.

Be sure that you have a severe weather plan in place today and keep a battery operated radio handy.
