Earlier, the National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center placed the northwestern quadrant of Indiana in a slight risk of severe weather on Tuesday, but a later update pulled that back.
A more widespread severe weather outbreak will be possible in Indiana on Wednesday as the storm system moves closer to the state.
The Storm Prediction Center has placed all except far southern Indiana in a moderate risk area for severe storms on Wednesday.
Damaging winds, large hail and tornadoes will be possible, with the greatest threat in central and northern Indiana.
The rest of Indiana is under a slight risk of severe weather on Wednesday.
Isolated severe thunderstorms will pose a tornado threat, with a line of storms expected to form later in the day that will carry more of a damaging wind threat, StormTeam 6 meteorologist Todd Klaassen said.
