Thunderstorms Erupt in Illinois & Will Be Moving Our Way
The timing of thunderstorms between late this afternoon and evening is still on track. There is a disturbance quickly moving our way from Missouri. This will help break the cap in the atmosphere and spread thunderstorms into our area. The high clouds have dissipated enough to where I think we will still see some wind gusts near 60 mph as these storms race through the area. This will be our main threat. The farther north and west of Lafayette you go the higher the risk of damaging thunderstorms and isolated tornadoes. Extreme northern Indiana and southern Michigan is still my bulleye for this storm. These areas will see the most widespread severe weather and this includes Fort Wayne. We will do cut-ins on the tube as the storms start to move our way. Stay alert and stay tuned for the latest.
