As you can see in the map above, for most of Indiana, including all counties served by the northern Indiana NWS office, the outlook indicates a 15 percent probability of severe weather within 25 miles of a point. In parts of west central and southwestern Indiana, the probability is 30 percent.

It would be a good idea to keep an eye on SPC convective outlooks as Thursday approaches.
