There is an increased risk for severe weather activity in Bartholomew, Johnson, Jackson, Jennings, Decatur, Shelby, Marion, Monroe, Brown, Martin, and Lawrence Counties.
Thunderstorm activity is possible at times from Wednesday through Monday. An area of low pressure will move along a cold front during the day on Wednesday which could produce heavy showers and thunderstorms, hail, frequent cloud-to-ground lightning, and damaging winds. An upper trough will deepen into a low-pressure system over the region late in the week, resulting in recurring showers and thunderstorms throughout the period. Flooding is also a threat.
