Severe weather in Northern Indiana/Southern Lower Michigan and Northwest Ohio is not limited to the Spring.  September-November is another peak period for severe weather.

We are currently assessing the latest model data concerning the potential for severe weather today.

We will post our assessment as soon as we have a better idea of timing, duration and intensity.   It is hoped to have this posted before noon today.

In the meantime, the NWS in Northern Indiana continues to monitor Social Media (Facebook and Twitter)

All spotters are encouraged to review the reporting requirements and communications methods.
