WCRD Forecast Discussion – Severe Weather Chances

MUNCIE, IN – The active pattern that has persisted all week continues as we close out the week, and we have a couple chances of severe weather. Strong to severe storms have moved through Indiana Wednesday evening, and a couple more rounds are possible. The first round will move in by sunrise Thursday morning, and showers and storms will be possible through the early afternoon timeframe. Some of those may be on the strong side, and we will keep an eye on those. The main event looks to arrive late Thursday night as storms will fire ahead of a cold front over Illinois and move our way sometime after midnight. The main threats look to be mainly damaging winds and hail, but as we saw in parts of Indiana Wednesday, a few isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out.

All of Indiana is under an Enhanced Risk for severe weather Thursday-Thursday night.
