Heavy storms are moving across Indiana today bringing high winds and rain.

Nearly all of Indiana faces a moderate risk for severe weather this morning with high winds being the main threat.  A wind advisory is posted for all but the southern part of the state.  Sustained winds of 30 miles per hour are expected during the day with wind gusts in excess of 50 miles per hour possible.  National Weather Service Meteorologist Mike Ryan says a line of thunderstorms is expected to form along a cold front that will slice through the state.

“We cannot rule out with that line of storms the potential for tornadoes along the line although the wind damage is a much bigger concern at this time,” Ryan said.

Ryan encourages homeowners to put away lawn chairs, garbage cans, and other items that could be blown away in high winds.  Motorists should also be prepared for gusts that could affect their driving.  The passage of the storm will usher in cooler weather.  By Thursday, high temperatures will struggle to get into the low 50s.
