INDIANAPOLIS - All of Indiana is in a slight risk zone for severe weather through Tuesday evening as a frontal system sweeps through the state.
Damaging wind and large hail are the primary threat from the storms.
The timeline for storm development in central Indiana spans through late afternoon into late evening, with storm expected in the Indianapolis area by about 6 p.m.
"These will be very isolated strong to severe cells as they make their way through," said StormTeam 6 meteorologist Todd Klaassen. "There is the potential from the tail end of the evening commute through the evening hours for these strong storms."
Isolated storms with frequent lightning began moving into portions of western Indiana a little after 3 p.m.
The storms are expected to pack a moderate risk of wind and hail. The tornado threat is low.
Not everyone will get a strong or severe storm, and not all locations in central Indiana will get rain.
The storms are expected to be scattered, with the severe weather threat limited to isolated areas.
The severe weather potential will end during the late-evening hours as the storms push off to the east of central Indiana.
