Just a radar indicated rotation NOT a violent tornado

Wind gusts could still be 80 mph and a weak tornado could spin up that reaches the ground with 100+ mph winds.

Straight line winds from the SW were gusting to 54 mph at Paducah just beforenoon, so we could easily see wind gusting to 50+ mph in some places this afternoon. 

just before Noon, the Evansville winds were still E-14 mph gusting to 25 mph.

The will be almost double that the rest of the afternoon, shifting quickly to the SW then W later. 


Heavy rains and severe weather risk is over but the high winds and soggy ground could result in some weakly anchored trees or some tree limbs blowing down. 

No leaves on the trees makes them less top heavy and reduces that risk.
