• Slight risk of severe storms today

    November 14, 2011 No comments

    A relatively rare November severe weather day is possible in central Indiana today as a vigorous storm system moves through the state.

    A low-pressure system set up to the west of Indiana is pumping in warm, moist air ahead of a cold front set to move through the region this evening.

    The National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center placed most of the state in a slight risk zone for severe weather, with strong winds and tornadoes as the main threat. Large hail will also be possible.

    Some isolated thunderstorms could form ahead of a main line of storms later this afternoon. The isolated storms will pose the greatest threat for producing tornadoes. National Weather Service forecasters said a couple of those tornadoes could be strong.

    Potentially damaging winds will be possible in the isolated storms and also in storms that fire up along the front, sweeping through the state from west to east.

    The storm threat is expected to end during the evening hours as a line of thunderstorms pushes through along with the cold front.

    Much cooler weather is expected later this week, with highs in the 50s on Tuesday before high temperatures dip into the 40s by mid-week.
