Severe weather moves out of Indiana

INDIANAPOLIS - The first severe weather threat of the season moved through Indiana, with much warmer air and moisture streaming into the state ahead of a vigorous cold front.

A line of thunderstorms formed ahead of the cold front and swept into the western part of the state by 7 p.m. By 11 p.m., the system had moved through the state and into Ohio.

High winds and isolated tornadoes were the primary threats. Hail was not expected.

"Damaging wind will be the main threat from the strongest storms," said StormTeam 6 Chief Meteorologist Kevin Gregory. "Even outside of thunderstorms, wind gusts over 40 mph are expected."

The storm threat will end from west to east with the passage of the line of storms.

A much higher threat of severe weather extends from the Louisville area into Tennessee, where there is a substantial risk of damaging winds.

Behind the storms, temperatures will cool down quite a bit, and there is another shot of cold air moving into the region for early next week.
