Just got off the conference call. No surprises. The National Weather Service has the timing on thunderstorms mainly between 9 p.m. in Lafayette to 3 a.m. in Richmond, Indiana. Areas in Newton, Jasper, and Benton Counties can expect storms to move in a little sooner.
Main threats: Wind gusts of 60 to 70 mph and the likelihood of downed trees and some power outages.
There could be a few supercell thunderstorms that try to form in the Lafayette area between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. If this activity does ignite the main threats would be isolated tornadoes and large hail.
So the earlier the storms move in the worse off we will be...the later the better. Remember to have a NOAA Weather Radio in case you lose power and when getting to your safe spot you can certainly turn up your TV sets so you can hear what is going on. I will be back with your precast shortly. Stay calm, stay safe, and stay tuned.
