An EF-1 tornado was confirmed near Jasper in Dubois Co last year.

Indiana is in the crosshairs of a dangerous storm system that could hit Friday. Meteorologist Todd Klaassen says the setup is similar to the system that fueled at least 20 tornadoes Wednesday in the Midwest. At least 12 died in the storms.

Klaassen says conditions will be eerily similar, but the next round of storms will contain more moisture which could create even more problems than earlier this week.

“Kind of the same setup, eerily similar in the fact that temperatures will be very mild up in the upper 60s again tomorrow with a cold front coming through. The thing that we have tomorrow in addition that we really didn‘t have yesterday is a lot of moisture is going to be available,” he says.

The storm prediction center in Norman, Oklahoma placed the southern half of Indiana under a moderate risk for severe weather while there is a slight change of severe weather in other parts of the state.

The best chance of severe weather is Friday afternoon and evening.
