WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Indiana counties have been popping in and out of NWS warnings for days, and we are not in the clear quite yet. More storms are expected to continue Thursday and into the weekend.

News 18’s Chief Meteorologist Chad Evans said scattered storms are likely Thursday into Friday morning.

“Scattered storms tonight,” Evans said. “Isolated wind and hail for the overnight.”

Evans said severe storms with are possible because Thursday’s heat index will once again be near 100.

“We need to watch a cluster of storms over Iowa,” said Evans. “This may affect us late tonight into early Friday morning. Isolated severe gusts are possible with it.”

As the storms clusters pop-up, the National Weather Service has been issuing Thunderstorm Warnings and Flash Flood Warnings across Central Indiana.

Check out the News 18 Weather Alerts page for the current list of warnings in our area.

NWS suggests to take precautionary measures in advance. Officials said to take action prior to the storm and move to an interior room on the lowest level of a building.

Due to the high amount of rainfall in a short period of time, NWS said flash flooding is a possibility. They said never drive through flooded roadways.

In addition, Evans said storms will continue into the weekend. He said more scattered storms are possible Friday afternoon into evening with isolated severe wind and hail threats. As well as Saturday morning and evening, some of which may affect the Taste of Tippecanoe.

Evans will have more on News 18 at Five and Six or head to Chad’s Blog. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
