One wave of scattered showers/storms has exited. Coverage here was only around 35-40%, while it has been much higher farther eastward from the viewing area. Now we are in the lull with sunshine, warming temps, increasing breezes from the south & southwest & higher humidity.
Current regional radar.....showers & t'storms moving eastward:
An unseasonably strong storm system will result in an unseasonably widespread severe weather outbreak today-tonight from Michigan to Alabama.
Our viewing area is in SLIGHT RISK with ENHANCED RISK (per Storm Prediction Center) from Crawfordsville to Lafayette to Delphi to near Winamac & eastward.
This would mean scattered to numerous severe storms are likely this afternoon. This would be a watch situation, then multiple warning scenario for a few hours. The best severe risk is in the eastern half of the area, it appears.
The main threat is severe gusts, but a couple of tornadoes & a couple/few reports of large hail are possible.
Storms should fire near midday in Newton County, backbuild to the southwest, gradually congeal into a line & sweep through quickly. It should be out of here by 5 p.m.
A scattering of showers & t'showers should follow tonight through Sunday with peak coverage during peak heating of the afternoon-early evening.
