A couple quick notes for you: the debris clouds overhead this morning are from a squall line that died out overnight. These clouds ruined many storm chases over the Plains yesterday. I hope it ruins our chances of seeing any widespread severe weather and I think it will. The areas that did not see debris clouds overspread the sky this morning are areas of most concern for the more widespread severe weather later today and tonight.....this would include areas near Bloomington and southern Indiana and also areas of extreme northern and eastern Indiana and especially lower Michigan. Those are the two target zones for the worst of the storms today. Those are the favored areas for supercell thunderstorms and tornadoes.
Those heading to Indianapolis for softball today....some good news....more of a broken line of thunderstorms will try to move through this evening and if it does develop it will likely be a quick-mover! Drive safely and stay alert to changing weather conditions.
With this said, we are still in a slight risk of severe weather in both Indinapolis and Lafayette and the prime time for development will be between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. The main threats will be wind damage and large hail. I will continue to closely monitor the situation for you. Right now I am optimistic we will dodge the worst of the storms, but it is a guarded optimism.
