LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - UPDATE: Strong rotation was seen in in a cell that headed southwest toward Logansport. The storm is moving east, but risk for severe activity has not yet passed.
As of 11:30 p.m., several area counties were still under severe thunderstorm watches and warnings. Some were put on tornado watches and warnings. You can see the list of local weather alerts here.
As of 11:45 p.m. Weather Team 18 Meteorologist Cameron Hopman says the line of major storms that moved through the area this evening has mostly passed, but there is the possibility for another line of storms to hit.
Hopman says a lot of activity is occurring in northeast Illinois, which is where this last line of storms originated. There's a possibility we could see another round of storms before the morning.
At 10:11 p.m. we received word from a spotter in Wolcott, Ind., that there were some medium-sized limbs down in that area, with frequent lightning and a dust cloud.
Around 10:30 p.m. a funnel cloud was reported just west of Monticello, in a cell that moved southeast toward Logansport.
Hopman says heat during the day along with humidity are two ingredients that can generate this kind of storm development.
Chief Meteorologist Chad Evans says Greater Lafayette is fair game for pop-up thunderstorms into the early morning hours Thursday.
Evans, via Chad's Blog, said since the main line will be evolving from super cells/multi-cells to a line as it moves in, some storms will produce large hail. A tornado or two of EF0-EF2 strength cannot be ruled out.
The main storm threat will be damaging straight-line winds and micro/macro bursts, wrote Evans in his blog. He went on to say he wouldn't rule out a "gustnado" or two on the leading edge of the winds from the developing line of storms.
