WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Most of Indiana is under a slight risk for severe thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon possibly bringing damaging wind and large hail to the state.
News 18 Chief Meteorologist Chad Evans said Tuesday’s dynamics are not great. He said it will be hot and very unstable in the afternoon to evening with highs of 85 to 90 and dew points in the 70s.
Evans said with the projected instability, storms are possible. He said the storms tend to pulse up, reach their peak briefly, then collapse and pop other storms nearby.
“That said, a 40 percent chance of thunderstorms looks good,” Evans said. “An isolated severe storm or two is possible.”
News 18 Meteorologist Cameron Hopman said our area will get hit with popping storms between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.
