Most of Indiana has a slight risk of severe weather between 8 a.m. EDT Monday, Oct. 13 and 8 a.m. Tuesday, according to the “Day 3 Convective Outlook” that the National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center (SPC) issued today.

SPC meteorologists expect the main treats to be damaging straight-line thunderstorm winds of 58 mph or greater and a few tornadoes.

The greatest threat will be in the southern portions of the slight risk area (see map above), however, even if Indiana receives no severe weather, meteorologists indicate that heavy rain could pose a flooding risk.

If you think tornadoes are unlikely this time of year, remember what happened in Van Wert, Ohio in November of 2002.

Our next look at the severe weather outlook for Monday comes at around 2 a.m. EDT Sunday, when the SPC issues a “Day 2 Convective Outlook.”
