Gusty/active storms continue Monday night, new severe threat Wednesday
STORMS MONDAY NIGHT
The severe thunderstorm watch has expired but several clusters of storms will roam central Indiana through 3 AM Tuesday. Locally heavy rainfall and frequent cloud to ground lightning strikes are possible. A isolated, strong wind gust could occur and prompt a severe thunderstorm warning but these should remain rather isolated.
At 11 pm a very heavy storm was entering Vermilion county and more storms extend into central Illinois. The storms will continue to slide east, southeast. An incredible lightning show will continue and it will be quite bumpy for a few more hours.
COLD FRONT COMING
The heat peaked at 90 degree Monday – the 5th time this season on Monday. This is the most 90 degree days so early in a season since 2012. A wind shift will occur around day break and a refreshing northwest wind will blow on Tuesday. It will be turning much more comfortable Tuesday afternoon as the tropical dew points retreat!
NEW STORM THREAT
The same front passing early Tuesday will return Wednesday as a warm front. The front is likely to bring more storm into the state around sunrise and these storms could be severe. The Storm Prediction center has outlined much of central Indiana with a enhanced risk of severe storms. We will better time these storms on Tuesday, be sure to check back on line and at Fox 59.
