The warm early-spring weather dominating the eastern and central U.S. will trigger a few strong thunderstorms in the lower Ohio and central Mississippi valleys this evening.

Storms continue to pop up from eastern Missouri into southern Indiana and north-central Tennessee, with frequent lightning, large hail and flash flooding the main concerns. If you are on the road and encounter water, remember to "Turn Around -- Don`t Drown!".

Hail the size of ping-pong balls was reported in Franklin, Tenn., with golf ball size hail and flash flooding in Centerville, Tenn. Hail ranging in size from dimes to quarters were reported southeast of St. Louis earlier this evening as well.

There is still enough atmospheric energy for a few more storms to continue tonight into early Thursday morning. Louisville, Ky., Terre Haute and Evansville, Ind., could all see strong and severe storms later tonight and early Thursday.
