Severe Weather Expected on Tuesday, According to NWS

Indiana may experience its first significant bout of severe weather this year as meteorologists monitor a system heading towards the state.

According to the National Weather Service in Indianapolis, a system is currently forming over the Great Plains and is expected to reach our area tomorrow. As a result, the Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma has issued a “slight risk” warning for severe weather in most of Illinois and a significant portion of northern Indiana.

Severe weather is likely to occur in any given area.

According to David Beachler from NWS Indianapolis, this system will move towards the Great Lakes region. He mentioned that there is a possibility of severe winds and large hail. Additionally, there is a slight chance of isolated tornado development.

There is an increased risk of severe weather in the areas along the I-70 corridor in northern Indiana. As of now, the exact timing of when the storms will hit Indiana tomorrow is still uncertain.

According to Beachler, this system brings about a significant variation in wind patterns, resulting in what is known as “differential winds”. In essence, these unpredictable winds can potentially cause damage to structures, trees, power lines, and various other elements.

Today’s warmer temperatures could also contribute to the intensification of these storms.

According to Beachler, Indiana is expected to experience record-breaking temperatures today, with some areas possibly reaching the low 70s. Following the departure of the storms, there will be a temporary cool down on Wednesday, potentially resulting in a light dusting of snow. However, temperatures are expected to rise once again later in the week.
