Turbulent weather pattern arrives Thursday; Drastic cool-down to follow

TODAY:

Strong winds from a rapidly changing low pressure system will aid in today's severe weather threat.

All focus is on today’s chance of severe weather. In a narrow wind of time, from 11am to 4pm, our entire area has been UPGRADED to a SLIGHT risk of severe weather.

Scattered, severe storms are possible. It looks like the greatest energy builds and swings through Michiana between 2-4pm, at the warmest part of the day. Main threats still include small hail, gusty winds, heavy rain and the chance of a minor tornado can’t be ruled out. Winds will be sustained between 20-30mph with gusts possible over 50mph. The threat ends by dinnertime.
