INDIANAPOLIS — A strengthening storm system is brewing to our west and is already triggering severe thunderstorm warnings and watches in Kansas, Oklahoma and Missouri.
Temperatures are heading into the mid 80s this afternoon with rising clouds. Widespread thunderstorms will develop along a frontal boundary, mostly after 5 p.m., but a few erratic thunderstorms could develop ahead of the front in the late afternoon.
The Storm Prediction Center placed most of central Indiana under a level 2 out of 5 for the potential for severe scattered storms. Destructive gusts of wind and hail are the main threats throughout the evening. This could lead to isolated power outages and downed trees/branches.
Storms will continue to affect the region until midnight. Keep this in mind when you go to bed tonight, as you will want to plan ahead to have a way to receive warnings. The risk of severe storms continues overnight, but will dissipate at 3 a.m. early Monday.
Skies will clear up by the Monday morning rush as temperatures drop back into the mid 50s. It will be a seasonal sunny afternoon with highs in the mid 70s.
