Several waves of showers and thunderstorms are expected to affect Indiana from Wednesday night through Friday morning.

Thursday morning storms could have some hail, but the main severe weather threat is expected across the entire area Thursday evening.

"Right now, the timing is looking like it will be after 8 p.m.," StormTeam 6 meteorologist Kyle Mounce said Wednesday afternoon. "Be prepared for the possibility of large hail, strong winds, maybe even a tornado."

It is possible that parts of Indiana could be upgraded to a moderate risk zone, but areas to the southwest of the state are expected to get the worst of the severe weather.

Storms could be in the region through early Friday morning, and some areas could get very heavy rains.

Rainfall amounts of 2-4 inches are possible, generally south of Interstate 70, but heavy rain is possible in the entire region.

The severe weather threat will end by early Friday, with cooler temperatures settling in for the weekend.
