Everything still looks on track. The timing may be a little quicker with the thunderstorms as latest trends show our best chance of thunderstorms now between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. The good news is we have not had any storm reports in Illinois. The bad news is these storms will likely become stronger because of the clearing that has taken place here in Indiana causing the atmosphere to be more unstable. These storms formed in a more stable air mass in Illinois and this will change as they move into Indiana.
Expect a severe thunderstorm watch shortly with the main threats of damaging wind, large hail, and lightning. The Storm Prediction Center has also just come out with a mesoscale discussion confirming this for our area. Here we go again. Please warn friends and relatives that had plans this evening to have a Plan B and to have a safe place they can go to if they are out and about.
