3 PM THURSDAY UPDATE on thunderstorm timing

A gap developed between thunderstorms has developed 2:50 pm Thursday. The storms in eastern Illinois will spread east - arriving for PM commute.

Currently a severe thunderstorm watch is in effect in northeast Indiana until 8 pm.

I'm posting below the latest forecast radar at 6:30 pm showing the next round arriving in a few hours.

A few strong storms are still possible while the severe threat still looks minimal. An advancing cold front will push these storms into central Indiana. Along the front, a few isolated storms may produce hail and a damaging wind gusts.
