Today was the first time in a while it felt like summer as temperatures soared into the 70's. Those warm conditions and sunny skies will serve as fuel for thunderstorms this evening.
Tuesday Night: The evening starts out calm and mild before thunderstorms move in around midnight. Behind the storms, temperatures fall into the mid-50's.
Storm Timing: A line of thunderstorms will develop near the Indiana-Michigan state line and move southeast. This will approach the northern counties of the NewsLink Indiana viewing area around midnight. As these storms move southeast, some of them could contain damaging winds or large hail. As our threat index indicates, large hail seems to be the greatest threat. Storms should exit the region by 3-4AM.
Wednesday: Some clouds may still linger across the region Wednesday morning, but we begin to clear our later in the day. Temperatures rise near the 70 degree mark, making for a fantastic day! Clouds return Wednesday evening as another round of showers and thunderstorms move in.
7-Day Forecast: Showers and thunderstorms Wednesday night will usher in MUCH cooler temperatures to end the week! Expect highs only in the 40's Thursday and Friday, with temperatures returning closer to average for the weekend.
