Sunday is a bit tricky as a cold front will bring showers and thunderstorms to Central Indiana. Right now, it looks like the line of storms will move into central Indiana by early afternoon. There is a chance of a strong to severe thunderstorm for our entire viewing area. The main threats are damaging winds and large hail. An isolated tornado can’t be ruled out.
