Risk Of Severe Storms South Of IndyBy
Isolated to widely scattered strong or severe storms are possible this afternoon primarily south of I-70. Though many places will remain dry, it’s a good idea to check Doppler 13 Radar for any storms the next 6 hours: http://www.wthr.com/category/256369/indianapolis-live-doppler-radar An upper level disturbance moving east to west (called retrograding) along the Ohio River will help trigger the hit and miss boomers.
With much colder/drier air aloft, there is a slight risk of large hail/damaging wind gusts within the strongest storms. Again primarily focused in the southern viewing area… closer to the upper disturbance and better lift. Below is the latest FutureTrak 13, which shows both the isolated nature in coverage and narrow window any storms would occur 3pm-8pm. Most backyards along and north of I-70 should remain dry… and it should be a rather pleasant evening. I’ll have more on the building heat and humidity for next week later this evening.
