There’s an increasing risk of severe weather in Indiana over the next few days. The northern third of Indiana has a slight risk of severe weather between 8 a.m. tomorrow, Tuesday, June 25 and 8 a.m. Wednesday, according to the Day 2 Convective Outlook that the Storm Prediction Center issued this morning.. The slight risk area includes Allen County, but just barely.

The following day, however, the entire state of Indiana is at slight risk of severe weather, according to this morning’s Day 3 Convective Outlook. It covers 8 a.m. Wednesday, June 26 through 8 a.m. Thursday.

Michael Lewis, the warning coordination meteorologist at the northern Indiana National Weather Service (NWS) office, sent a message to storm spotters today in which he advised that today would be a good day to check your preparedness and response plans. In addition, spotters should review the reporting criteria and methods on the Northern Indiana Skywarn Spotter Page:

Lewis wrote that as conditions warrant, the office might issue multimedia weather briefings. If so, they’ll  be posted on the office’s Facebook, Twitter and home page.

Keep your eye on NWS resources for the next couple of days for updates as they become available.
