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.”
