  • TORNADO WATCH UNTIL MIDNIGHT WEDNESDAY
  • RAIN COMES TO AN END
  • WIND GUSTS INCREASE WEDNESDAY MORNING

The remnants of what was once category 5 Hurricane Beryl will move through central Indiana overnight and exit Wednesday afternoon. As the area of low pressure associated with Beryl move closer to central Indiana, bands of showers and thunderstorms extend through Kentucky Tuesday early evening. The bands will continue to move northeast towards the Hoosier state.
A few of the embedded thunderstorms will have the potential to produce quick spin-up tornadoes Tuesday evening. These aren't the typical supercell thunderstorms Indiana often experiences in the spring or summer. These might produce enough spin for a tornado that lasts 1-2 minutes. Because of this, the Storm Prediction Center has issued a Tornado Watch for portions of south-central Indiana. The watch is in effect until midnight Wednesday.

Rain will continue to fall overnight and through mid-morning Wednesday. Heavier amounts will be confined to the northwest of central Indiana and to areas that have thunderstorms pass over. A five computer model average suggests 0.68" of rain for Indianapolis through 2 p.m. Wednesday.

As the rain moves out, wind will begin to move in from the northwest. Winds may gust 35 to 45 mph before noon. The winds will begin to gradually decrease through the afternoon.
