FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — Severe weather threatens northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio Friday evening as a warm front moves through the region.
Storms move into the area Friday after 6 p.m. and continue through the night.
The chance for severe weather diminishes after 2 a.m. Saturday.
If you live near the Michigan border, you have a higher chance of seeing severe storms.
Storms will have the potential to reach and surpass severe weather limits.
Damaging winds over 58 mph and heavy rain are our main threats.
It's possible that some may see hail larger than a quarter too.
An isolated tornado or two cannot be ruled out, but it's going to be more of a straight-line wind event.
These storms are likely going to pass over the same area for an extended period of time, which increases our flooding risk.
Rain totals may reach over 1 inch in areas near the Michigan border.
Showers and storms will continue on Saturday, which will only add to the flooding risk.
A couple of storms may push severe limits on Saturday.
