INDIANAPOLIS - There is a risk that some thunderstorms on Tuesday could become severe in Indiana, packing damaging winds and large hail.
StormTeam 6 meteorologist Todd Klaassen said the threat area is generally along and south of Interstate 70.
A severe thunderstorm watch was posted for most areas south of Indianapolis through Tuesday evening until 10 p.m. but the watch was canceled by 9 p.m.
The National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center placed the southern half of Indiana in a slight risk area for severe thunderstorms.
Tornadoes are not expected, but there is a chance some of the storms could have 1-inch or larger hail and wind gusts of 60 mph or higher.
Scattered thunderstorms are expected to fire up in the vicinity of a cold front draped across Indiana. By later in the afternoon, some of them could become severe.
After the storms move south of the area late Tuesday and early Wednesday, the severe weather threat will end, and humidity levels will decrease.
Sunshine will return for the back half of the week, with more comfortable conditions mid-week giving way to some heat and humidity into the weekend.
