A severe thunderstorm watch has been issued for our entire viewing area until 7:00 p.m.

The Storm Prediction Center out of Norman, Oklahoma has issued this watch for the threat of wind gusts 70 mph or higher and hail up to 1.5" in diameter.

According to Meteorologist David Harker, the main threat for larger hail and high wind will be south of the viewing area. However, there may be scattered storms that produce high winds and hail in Michiana.

Meteorologist Mike Hoffman is in the weather lab and will be providing updates as new information comes in.
