The threat area was generally along and north of a line from Danville, Ill. to Winchester.

Damaging winds will be the primary threat from storms, though large hail and an isolated tornado or two will also be possible, Storm Team 6 meteorologist Todd Klaassen said.

The threat area was along a warm front that pushed north of central Indiana, ushering in much warmer temperatures.

High temperatures in the mid- to upper-80s are expected the next couple of days.

Scattered thunderstorms are expected to ride along the warm front, spawning from a low-pressure system to the west of the state.

The storm threat will lift north on Wednesday, but showers and thunderstorms will return to the forecast for the last part of the week.
