It looks like Mother Nature is not letting up with adverse weather conditions in the Evansville area. The National Weather Service of Paducah has issued a High Wind Watch for the entire Tri-State area.
Thunderstorms, high winds possible tonight
There is only a slight chance the thunderstorms will become severe, though it's possible they will produce heavy rain, dangerous lightning and small hail, officials said.
Meanwhile, a high wind watch will go into effect tonight for gusts between 25 and 40 miles an hour. Those winds are expected regardless of whether the thunderstorm turns severe and could cause more problems than usual because of the recent ice storm.
"Winds of this magnitude may down trees and power lines or at the very least down still loose hanging limbs from recent ice storm damage," the weather service wrote in a forecast.
