Damaging winds, isolated tornadoes possible

Damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes will be possible across southern and eastern parts of the Indiana.

"Damaging wind would be the main one, and then you can't rule out the chance of a few isolated tornadoes embedded in these thunderstorms," StormTeam 6 meteorologist Todd Klaassen said. "They'll start to develop as we go into the afternoon and evening hours."

Storms are expected to form ahead of a cold front that will sweep across the state.

The National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center originally placed all but extreme southeastern Indiana in a slight risk for severe weather, but an early-afternoon update cleared central Indiana from the slight risk area.

The storm system responsible for the severe weather potential in Indiana is the same storm system that spawned tornadoes in the Midwest and Great Plains the last few days, including the Moore, Okla. tornado that claimed dozens of lives.

The severe weather threat will end from west to east across Indiana late in the day and early Wednesday morning.

The storm system will be out of most of the state by Wednesday, though some showers and thunderstorms will still be possible in central Indiana.

Storms that pushed through the region early Tuesday morning caused some scattered wind damage, but damage reports were not widespread.
