SPC Tornado Threat may be increasing.
Also looked at tornado parameters. Elevated across SW KY the next couple of hours...but values decrease later this evening. A good sign!

Another tornado warning for SW Indiana. This one will likely pass to our north...but you can see how the "wiggles" in the line can prompt these alerts. So far, no reports of touchdowns.
Tracking the squall line about to approach Hopkinsville. Still watching those supercells in TN as they surge northward. We have about 2-3 hours of quiet left locally.
Watching supercells in TN moving north. Still a question how far they will make it before the squall line catches up with them.
