(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - The National Weather Service is putting the tri-state area on notice about the potential for severe weather Tuesday afternoon and evening.

Most towns will see their first thunderstorm of the day between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., WLWT meteorologist Randi Rico said. Thunderstorms could produce their own winds which would only make some of these gusts even higher.

Isolated storms are possible ahead of the main event, but the greatest risk is after 6 p.m., the weather service said.

Those headed to Little League World Series games in Williamsport can expect thunderstorms and delays, AccuWeather reports.

The best chance for afternoon storms is Thursday afternoon when the chance of rain and thunder rises to 30 percent. Tonight's low is 71 degrees.

High temperatures will hover in the mid 80s through Monday, the NWS says.
