severe threat

Central Indiana is under a “slight risk” of severe storms this evening and overnight.  We are looking at a threat of damaging winds primarily.

It looks like our more defined storm event will develop later this evening and into the overnight hours.  It looks like a line of storms will develop in northern Indiana late this evening and then push to the south in the overnight hours. This type of storm system typically brings in a threat for damaging wind gusts. See live updates below.
