How about this crazy Indiana weather?  Freezing rain crippled travel late Friday, and 48 hours later the Wabash Valley needs to prepare for the possibility of severe thunderstorms.

The National Weather Service has placed the southern half of the listening area (south of I-70) in a moderate risk for severe storms.  The north part of the listening area has a slight risk.  The largest threat is damaging winds, but large hail and isolated tornadoes are also possible.   Most of the storms won’t start until very late Sunday night into the overnight hours.   Here is the latest bulletin from the National Weather Service in Indianapolis:
