INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — It has been a breezy and warm day across the state with a mix of sun and clouds. We are tracking the threat for strong to severe storms for our Monday evening and night.
Monday night: A Tornado Watch remains in effect until 10 PM EDT/9 PM CDT for far northwestern Indiana.
Scattered showers and storms will continue through sunset before diminishing during the overnight hours.
There is the threat for isolated strong to severe storms mainly before midnight. The main hazard is damaging winds, but isolated tornadoes are possible mainly west of Indianapolis. The tornado threat will linger until sunset. Any thunderstorm will feature heavy rainfall and frequent lightning.
Lows will fall into the upper 50s.
Tuesday: We will settle into a mainly dry Tuesday with skies becoming mostly sunny. Breezy winds will stick around as our highs rise into the mid 70s.
Wednesday: A slightly warmer afternoon will be on tap for our Wednesday as rain chances quickly return to the forecast. The chance for rain will increase as we get into Wednesday night. There is the chance for isolated strong to severe storms from a Kokomo-Lafayette line and northwest. The primary hazards are damaging winds and hail, but an isolated tornado is not out of the question.
