Peak gusts of 30 to 40 mph are forecast in the morning hours, with a few locally higher gusts possible. These winds could cause issues with high-profile vehicles on east-west oriented roadways and may cause any loose yard objects and decorations to move around. Rains will develop early in the morning over southern Indiana and then overspread the rest of the region through the morning hours.
Gusts still are possible in the afternoon, but the attention then shifts to any developing storms over western Kentucky, close to a cold front approaching the region. Should this line become organized, there would be some risk for damaging wind gusts in the late afternoon and early evening hours.
