Strong storms possible today and tomorrow, severe storms unlikely

There is a chance for thunderstorms today and tonight in northeastern Indiana, southern Lower Michigan and northwestern Ohio, but forecasters do not expect the storms to be severe, according to the “Hazardous Weather Outlook” that the northern Indiana National Weather Service (NWS) office issued at 5:25 a.m.

Wind gusts to 45 mph are possible, however, with the strongest storms, so it would be a good idea to put away any lightweight lawn furniture or anything else that could blow away. Some storms could also bring locally heavy rainfall.

There is a chance for more storms tomorrow (Tuesday, June 25), a few of which could produce isolated wind gusts approaching severe limits (58 mph). If that happens, it will most likely be east of Interstate 69.

NWS meteorologists did not anticipate any activation of SKYWARN storm spotters at the time they wrote the outlook.
