Severe potential less clear

The National Weather Service did not issue a weather watch for northern Indiana despite an 8:52 a.m. mesoscale discussion that indicated NWS would soon issue a watch. In addition, the potential for severe weather today in northeastern Indiana and northwestern Ohio has become less clear, according to the updated Day 1 Convective Outlook that the National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center issued at 12:27 p.m.

Forecasters kept the area of slight risk and probabilities the same as in the previous outlook. But forecasters wrote that trends in general were weakening and that except for eastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania, “the potential for substantive additional strong/severe storm development across the remainder of the adjacent lower Great Lakes region is becoming more unclear.”
