The National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center has all of Northern Indiana, including Marshall County, under the “Slight Risk” category (2 out of 5) for the threat of severe weather today and into the overnight hours.
THREAT: Round One: Isolated, “pop-up” storms (similar to yesterday) are possible 12-7pm east of US-31. Isolated damaging winds and locally heavy rain are possible. Confidence is medium. A few strong storms are expected but they will be isolated.
Round Two: Additional storms possible after 11pm. The severe risk is very low and mainly confined to far Northwestern Indiana and Southwestern Michigan.
IMPACT: Strong winds may cause damage to trees, which may lead to downed powerlines and power outages. We may also see trees across roads or into buildings. Ponding on road surfaces and localized flooding of low lying areas may also occur.
PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS: Monitor local news for weather updates and be prepared to take shelter should severe weather threaten.
