Fort Wayne, IN – Northern Indiana is preparing for a series of scattered thunderstorms this afternoon, with some potentially severe. The storms, expected to develop after 4 PM EDT, could bring heavy downpours, lightning, hail up to 1 inch in diameter, and strong wind gusts.

According to the National Weather Service, not every location will experience storms, but those that do may face slow-moving systems capable of significant weather disruptions. These storms are predicted to persist into the evening, posing a risk to communities across northern Indiana.

Looking ahead, the Storm Prediction Center has issued a slight risk warning for severe weather late Tuesday into early Wednesday. This forecast affects northeast Indiana, northwest Ohio, and southern Lower Michigan. A line of strong to severe storms is expected to develop to the west and move eastward across the region late Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning.

The primary concerns with this second round of storms include damaging wind gusts exceeding 60 mph and the potential for isolated tornadoes. The National Weather Service advises residents to have multiple ways to receive weather warnings, especially since the severe weather is expected to occur overnight.

Staying informed and prepared is crucial as the region faces multiple chances for severe weather over the next 48 hours.
