South Bend, IN – Residents of Northwest Indiana should prepare for isolated strong to severe thunderstorms tonight, with the highest threat window between 6 to 11 p.m. EDT.

According to the US National Weather Service Northern Indiana, the most significant hazards expected are wind gusts reaching up to 60 mph and hail up to 1 inch in diameter overnight Monday. Heavy rainfall and lightning are also major concerns. The storms are anticipated to develop this evening in the west and move eastward, with potential impacts across the region.

Forecasters indicate a lower confidence level in predicting the exact intensity and coverage of these storms once they move into the area. However, it is advised that residents stay weather-aware and take necessary precautions to protect themselves and their property. The storms are expected to gradually weaken as they progress eastward later tonight.

In addition to tonight’s storm threat, the weather service has highlighted the potential for more severe weather on Tuesday and Wednesday. Residents are encouraged to stay informed through local weather updates and heed any warnings or advisories issued.

For those with outdoor plans, it is crucial to stay vigilant and have multiple ways to receive weather alerts. Variable cloud cover and temperatures in the 60s are expected overnight, following the storm activity.
