Large hail and wind threat arrives in our area after 10:30 p.m.
We are watching tornadic storms just south and east of Indianapolis. In Illinois we are keeping an eye on large hail bearing storms with some gusty winds near 45 mph. There have been isolated tornadoes southwest of Champaign. But as this thunderstorm area matures it will turn into a mesoscale convective system over the next couple hours. In this set-up large hail would be Lafayette's main threat. We still may have an isolated high wind gust and of course in a tornado watch we will still have conditions favorable for isolated tornadoes. As of now....large hail and flooding rain head my list of our main threats. Please stay alert and stay tuned.
