8 a.m. EDT weather map
A cold/stationary front can be seen draping across the Midwest in this weather map issued at 8 a.m. EDT by the National Weather Service. That front is forecast to move across Indiana this afternoon and evening, possibly triggering severe storms along and ahead of itself.

There’s still some uncertainty about severe weather in northeastern Indiana today, but the best chances for severe storms across the Fort Wayne area are between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. EDT, according to a meteorologist at the northern Indiana National Weather Service (NWS)  office.

As of 9 a.m. EDT, almost all of Indiana has a slight risk of severe weather, according to a convective outlook from the NWS Storm Prediction Center. Storms could form along and ahead of a sharp cold front that is forecast to move through the area later today.

The SPC will update its outlook for the day by 12:30 p.m. EDT.
