Indiana is under a moderate risk of severe storms Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

We will see near record highs this afternoon topping out in the mid-60s with a mostly cloudy sky and a brisk breeze from the south. We'll see a lot of dry time this afternoon with only isolated T-shower chances this afternoon and more dry time than wet.

After that, however, the severe weather threat amps up. Damaging winds and hail are expected as storms sweep through the Hoosier State. There is also the risk for tornadoes.
