Thursday night storm chances

We have already seen some scattered rain showers and thunderstorms, but more will come tonight.  Some of those will be strong, but the chance for severe weather is fairly low.  South of Fort Wayne, there is a Marginal Risk of severe weather which is the lowest of our 5 categories.  The biggest threats to watch for will be heavy rain, lightning, and some strong wind gusts (up to 40 mph).
