AEP warns of severe weather pattern

AEP's East Utilities will be in an active severe weather pattern late today through the weekend. The combination of unstable air, a stalled front, and several upper-level disturbances moving along the front will result in the severe storms.  Severe thunderstorms are expected to develop this afternoon over Illinois.

These storms may develop into a complex of severe storms - or even a squall line with widespread damaging winds - as they track across Indiana & Ohio this evening into tonight.  If a squall line does develop...a significant outage event will be possible,
especially for AEP Ohio.
