Special Weather Statement Issued by NWS NorthernIndiana (Northern Indiana and Northeastern Ohio)
Indiana Target Area: Elkhart, Fulton, Grant, Huntington, Kosciusko, Marshall, Miami, St. Joseph, Wabash, and Whitley Counties.
Funnel Clouds Possible This Evening.
Isolated showers and thunderstorms will continue to develop through the evening, along and west of Interstate 69. Spotters have reported a few of these showers and thunderstorms producing brief funnel clouds. Conditions in the atmosphere are such that weak, brief funnels may continue to form this evening. They usually develop beneath showers or weak thunderstorms when the air aloft is especially cold. These funnels are usually harmless, but on rare occasions can briefly touch down and cause wind gusts over 50 mph. If a funnel approaches your location, move indoors. Please contact the National Weather Service if you see a funnel.
