Winds capable of downing trees could accompany storms later today and tonight.

Severe thunderstorms rolling through south central Indiana prompted several thunderstorm warnings this morning bringing reports of hail as large as 1 3/4 inches.  Forecasters at the National Weather Service say the storms are due to a warm front rising north across central Indiana that later on, will collide with a cold front.  This will bring additional severe thunderstorms to south central Indiana, mainly this afternoon and early evening.

A tornado watch is in effect until 7 p.m. due to the high risk of lightning, large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes.  The watch is being referred to as a “particularly dangerous situation.”

Stay tuned to WFIU and WTIU for the latest watches and warnings.
