Indiana to see more storms Thursday

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Central Indiana remains under an enhanced risk for severe weather. While all “modes” of severe weather are possible, the highest concern will be damaging straight line winds, followed by large hail. An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out, especially west of Indianapolis.

Storms should begin to fire in central Illinois by mid to late afternoon and race to the east through the evening. Eventually, these isolated super cells should become one straight line as they cross into Indiana, sometime between mid to late evening. Storms should clear the area by the early overnight hours.

Along with the severe weather potential, flash flooding will remain a concern through the overnight. Many areas are fully saturated from heavy rain over the last few days. Additional rain from Thursday evening will only add to this problem. A flash flood watch will remain in effect for all of central Indiana until 4 a.m. Friday.

Be prepared for the storms by downloading the WISH-TV Weather App, which has interactive radar and weather alerts.
