Thunderstorms are likely this morning but severe weather is not expected, according to a “Hazardous Weather Outlook” that the northern Indiana office of the National Weather Service issued at 4:36 a.m.

Thunderstorms might redevelop this afternoon, especially southeast of a line from roughly Marion to Fort Wayne to Defiance. Meteorologists do not expect widespread severe weather in that area this afternoon, but an isolated strong to severe thunderstorm might pop up as early as mid-afternoon.

Elsewhere in the Midwest, extreme southern parts of Illinois and Indiana have a slight risk of severe weather today, as does all but the northwestern quarter of Ohio. The main threats are straight-line thunderstorm winds and hail.
