INDIANAPOLIS - Damaging wind gusts, isolated tornadoes and large, destructive hail are all possible in central and southern Indiana through Sunday morning as a vigorous storm system moves through.
All of Indiana is in a slight risk area for severe weather, with central and southern parts of the state at greatest risk of severe storms.
An earlier moderate risk of severe weather that had been in place has been removed, but the severe weather threat is still prominent.
Storms firing up to the west of the state during the afternoon hours are expected to move into Indiana during the evening and overnight hours.
Those storms are expected to pack a risk of damaging winds, some that could top 70 mph.
Tornadoes are also possible, though that risk is not as high as the straight-line wind threat.
As of 8:30 p.m., light rain was falling in the Indianapolis area.
More than 1,000 lightning strikes had also already been recorded between Greenwood and Lafayette.
Large hail is also possible with the strongest storms, particularly any storm that develops ahead of an expected line of storms.
The storm threat is expected to persist in Indiana into the overnight hours, with strong to severe thunderstorms also possible in Indiana through the first half of the day Sunday.
