This evening a line of storms will move across Michiana. A few storms could be on the strong/severe side. The biggest threat is damaging gusty winds, although periods of heavy downpours could also be a concern. Flood risk looks low, as the storms move quickly. Most begin to wrap up by midnight. Sunday should stay dry and mostly sunny. It’ll be another hot one with heat indices in the low 90s. This week stays hot with some relief after showers Wednesday night into Thursday.
