Day 1 Convective Outlook map

See an important update to this post (slight risk extended).

The northwestern quarter of Indiana (see map at left) has a slight risk of severe weather between 8 a.m. EDT today and 8 a.m. EDT tomorrow, according to the updated Day 1 Convective Outlook that the National Weather Service (NWS) Storm Prediction Center (SPC) issued at 8:40 a.m. EDT. The slight risk area includes approximately the western half of the county warning area of the northern Indiana NWS office (most of IMO SKYWARN quadrants three and four). The SPC does not expect severe weather in IMO SKYWARN quadrants one or two, which means no real risk of severe weather in the greater Fort Wayne area.
