INDIANAPOLIS – Today starts off breezy and warm with temperatures approaching the low 80s in the afternoon as the clouds rise. A powerful cold front brings the risk of severe to severe storms in the late afternoon and evening, especially in northwestern areas of the state where the Storm Prediction Center has issued a level 2 risk area out of 5.
Damaging gusty winds will be the main threat with some possible turning storms as the storms develop ahead of the main cold front.
Scattered storms are developing in northwestern portions of the state in this high-risk area from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. This includes places like Attica, Lafayette and Logansport.
A line of storms will then develop after sunset and move across the state from west to east. There will always be a risk of damaging wind gusts when crossing this line, especially on the west side of the state.
