Afternoon Forecast/Discussion, 3/14/24: A Whole Lot of Rumbling Going On!

Happy Pi Day, Cardinal Country! A line of strong thunderstorms rolling through around lunchtime will be one of two areas to watch for nasty weather. A line of thunderstorms with a more robust area in the northern Indy Metro is tapping into some stronger winds above the surface & that area was warned of the possibility of 70 mph wind gusts. That’s one of the the number of hazards we’re keeping an eye on, including the possibility of large to very large hail & some tornadoes.

Our first area – strong winds and hail the main threat with this line – should move through before 1 pm. This is why the National Weather Service has our area in a Severe Thunderstorm Watch until 4 pm at the latest. We could still have some breezy, showery, and overcast conditions for at least an hour behind that line. We then watch the potential for the sky to clear & for the atmosphere to reload for this evening’s storms, which has a conditional threat of supporting a wider range of those hazards mentioned earlier in this discussion. Meanwhile, as the SSW winds blow in and skies work to clear, we warm up to around 70 for the later afternoon.Stay weather aware, Cardinal Country, which means having weather alerts (Wireless Emergency Alerts) enabled on your phone, and/or your weather radio handy, but also stick with us and with local media (including NewsLink Indiana) for further alerts and updates!
