Friday evening severe storms

Severe storms are tracking across the region this evening. These storms are likely from Fort Wayne southward.  Little new storm activity is expected to develop north of Fort Wayne. The biggest threats with storms tonight are gusty winds 50-60+ mph, which are strong enough to bring down tree limbs and, potentially, some power lines.  The storms will also be slow moving, leading to an increased potential for flooding.  Be on alert for rising water.  Some small hail is also possible. By Friday night football gametime, conditions will be quieting down and the rain will be clearing to the east.
