THREATS:  Damaging Wind, and Large Hail are the biggest threats with an isolated chance of a tornado spin-up, but hail and win are the biggest threats right now.  The higher threats look to be just east and south of Indianapolis, but that could change quickly.

TIMING:  There have been some thunderstorm complexes overnight and this morning across northern Indiana.  So far, there has been a “lid” on the atmosphere to keep storms from erupting in central Indiana.  That lid will go away as we get daytime heating, and then as pop-up storms form, they will punch a hole in the lid, and then multiple storms should form after that.  This should start to take place by early to mid-afternoon and could last through early evening.
