The watch is generally along and northeast of a line from Chicago to Indianapolis.Up to 2-inch hail and wind gusts in excess of 70 mph are possible in the watch area.The storms are being fueled by a very warm air mass in place across central Indiana and a frontal system draped across the northern half of the state.Temperatures soared into the 90s across much of central and southern Indiana, adding fuel to developing storms in Illinois and in northwestern Indiana.Clusters of storms are expected to push through the watch area. Tornadoes are not expected, but they are always possible in severe thunderstorms.
