Storms are moving through central Indiana, producing warnings for high winds and large hail.
A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect for central Indiana until 7 a.m. Thursday. Damaging winds near 60 mph, hail, heavy rain and lots of lightning are the biggest threats.
Better odds for most of us arriving tonight and in the predawn hours of Thursday. Much of the region is under a Slight Risk for severe weather and damaging wind will be the main severe threat, though lightning and downpours will accompany any storm.
Multiple rounds of storms are anticipated tonight and early Thursday. Thunder and lightning may keep many of you up tonight and we’ll be updating on air and on line.
Rainfall will be feast or famine…with areas in the storm’s path receiving 1 to 2 inches and perhaps locally higher amounts. But it should be noted some areas farther south and southwest may not see a drop of rain the next 24 hours.
After a cloudy, damp start for some Thursday morning, we expect clouds to thin for midday sunshine. This will allow temperatures to warm quickly and help scattered showers and storms to redevelop during the afternoon and evening with a 50% chance of getting wet tomorrow.
