FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — Tropical Storm Cristobal continues northward Tuesday.
It delivered heavy rain, flooding and damaging winds to Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana on Sunday.
The storm is going to pass to the west of our area, but still pack a punch here.
Scattered showers and storms are likely, but a few storms may push and surpass severe weather limits.
The Storm Prediction Center has placed Wabash, Grant, and parts of Kosciusko, Huntington and Blackford counties under a slight risk for severe weather.
That means it falls into threat level 2 out of 5.
Everyone else is under a marginal risk, which is a 1 out of 5 on the threat level.
The confidence on the severe weather threat is low because of the exact timing and severe weather ingredients.
We're going to see strong southeast wind gusts up to 40 mph.
Isolated tornadoes are also possible, so it's going to be important to stay weather aware this evening.
The best time for severe storms across our area is between 4 p.m. and 12 a.m. Wednesday.
For a storm to be considered severe, it must reach the three following criteria: have wind gusts over 58 mph, hail larger than a quarter, or a tornado.
