We’re still monitoring an area of strong to severe storms around Chicagoland. While over a hundred miles away, these storms continue to hold their own on the nose of low level/warm wind field. There is no immediate impact to the WTHR viewing area, but storms are possible in north-central Indiana after midnight.
Hi-res model data suggests these storms may hold together and dive southeast into central Indiana later tonight/predawn Thursday morning. Don’t be surprised to hear thunder and have heavy downpours… especially in areas north and northeast of the Indy metro. This is not a give, but we will monitor the situation all night long. But I’m not completely ruling out the metro area yet. Stay tuned. Below are the latest hi-res FutureTrak13 model images that run from midnight until 8am.
