WABASH VALLEY, Ind. (WTHI) – A potent low pressure system will bring a warm front through the Wabash Valley bringing scattered thundershowers plus a surge of warmer air.
A strong cold front will bring the potential of strong to severe storms mainly between 4 and 8 p.m. Some storms could contain damaging wind gusts and prompt flash flooding and flooding along rivers with rapid snow melt + nearly 1″ rainfall.

The line of thunderstorms will begin to exit our Illinois viewing area and impact our Indiana viewing area around 8 p.m.
This is a very typical “squall line” set-up with all the upper-level atmospheric support needed for strong storm development. By 9 p.m. this quick moving line will move into central Indiana and start to exit the Wabash Valley.
Severe threat diminishes at this point as well.
Winds overall will become gusty in excess of 45 mph from the south and a Wind Advisory will be in effect from 7 p.m. Thursday through 7 p.m. Friday.
Storms exit along the cold front before midnight and it turns a lot colder with lows in the upper 20s.
