INDIANAPOLIS — Live Doppler 13 Radar remains mainly quiet overnight in central Indiana as widespread storms continue to weaken to our west.

These leftovers arrive Thursday morning in the form of gusty showers and should run their course between 5 a.m. and midday.

In their wake, clouds should clear to allow for heating and destabilization of the atmosphere. At the same time, wind shear will be increasing as an upper low spins over Illinois.

The increasing wind shear and low-level destabilization intersect in the eastern half of Indiana and it could allow some of the widely scattered storms to rotate.

It's a low chance, but enough that you should monitor radar closely Thursday afternoon.

It's uncertain at this time whether or not the expected broken-line of storms will develop closer to I-65 or farther east toward Ohio. 

It's conceivable that the Indy metro could miss out on the latter day development.
