Severe Weather Risk Increases Tuesday

By · April 18, 2011 at 7:25 am

Highs today will reach the mid to upper 60s with a chance of a spotty shower or isolated thunderstorm as we head into the afternoon.  Winds will gust out of the west up to 25mph.

Tonight, lows drop to the 40s with thunderstorms.  At times, the rain may be very heavy, creating localized flooding.

Tuesday, temps look to hit the low 70s.  More thunderstorms will develop for the afternoon, and some storms are likely to turn severe.  All of Central Indiana is under a moderate risk for severe storms Tuesday into Wednesday morning.  Tornadoes, damaging wind, and large hail are all likely threats from any thunderstorm that turns severe.

Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, the risk for severe weather will remain across Central Indiana.  We will once again be watching for thunderstorms that turn severe to produce tornadoes, damaging wind, and large hail. 

We will be in the SkyTrak 13 Forecast Center, tracking any and all storms that develop all hours of the day and night. 

Flooding will be another concern.  One to three inches of rain is possible from these storms, and some areas may pick up even more than that by Wednesday morning.

The chance of t-storms sticks around until midday Wednesday, with a break from the rain coming on Thursday.

More thunderstorms will be just around the corner Friday, but it’s too early to tell if those will be severe.  We will keep you posted.
