Tracking two rounds of potentially strong to severe storms today

NOW: Tracking two rounds of potentially strong to severe storms today

This morning starts quiet and cooler with temperatures in the low to mid 50s, but we're gearing up for more active weather this afternoon. Highs rise near 80 later today with storms taking over this afternoon's forecast. We are continuing to track 2 rounds of thunderstorms: the first being a line of storms in the early afternoon and the second being the chance for scattered thunderstorms this evening/tonight.

The timeline for round 1 is approximately 1PM-5PM with the main concerns being damaging winds and downpours resulting in flooding. Hail is still a possibility within stronger storms along the line. This first round will be more widespread, while the second will be more isolated/scattered. Round 2, which will be mainly after 8PM, will carry a more isolated threat, but one that warrants attention. Another line of storms will pass through central/southern IN - this is where we will see the greatest impacts out of the second round. The concern in Michiana will be IF a cell develops further north. Our environment will be favorable for severe weather at this time, but will we get those storms firing further north into Michiana is the question. The threat will be isolated but could still have significant impact, it will be important to stay weather aware this evening and tonight with more isolated storm cells bringing an increased threat for hail and isolated tornadoes.

Scattered showers last into Memorial Day with cooler temperatures topping out in the lower 70s. We could see a few more showers Tuesday PM before sunshine and seasonable temperatures take over the second half of the shortened work week.

Today: Thunderstorms in the afternoon, some of which could be severe. High 80.
Tonight: Scattered thunderstorms. Low 59.
Monday (Memorial Day): Scattered showers. High 72.
Tuesday: PM showers. High 70.
