FORT WAYNE – Thunderstorms headed toward northeast Indiana and could dump up to 2 inches of rain per hour, prompting the National Weather Service in northern Indiana to issue a flood watch until 11 p.m.
The following counties are included in the watch:
- Indiana – Adams, Allen, Huntington, Kosciusko, Wabash, Wells, Whitley, Starke, Pulaski, Marshall, Fulton, White, Cass, Miami, Grant, Blackford and Jay.
The bulk of the storms are expected after 3 p.m. Wednesday.
The rest of northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio are forecast to have rain, but not the volume expected in the current watch area.
A flash flood watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Some of the storms might bring damaging winds and quarter-size hail, and the weather service said the more severe storms are likely during the afternoon and evening.
