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.Futurecast-33

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.
