Spotty strong storms possible Monday afternoon
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH)–We had a soggy start to the morning commute and more storms will fire up later this afternoon. Some storms may be strong with gusty winds and heavy rainfall.
TODAY: A few spotty light showers will continue through the lunch hour. More showers and storms are possible later this afternoon. It’s going to be humid but cooler today with highs staying in the 70s. A cold front begins to move across the state later today and that will spark the chance for showers and storms. Some of the thunderstorms may be strong. The greatest risk of strong to severe storms is from I-70 and south. There’s a marginal risk from the Storm Prediction Center that some of the storms may be strong. Damaging winds and heavy rainfall are the primary threats. While the tornado threat is low it’s not zero. There’s a chance we may see a quick spin up.
