FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) - An intense storm complex is shaping up in the upper Midwest this afternoon. The chances of this system hitting us are very uncertain at this point. Many different weather models are in disagreement over the exact path and timing of this system. We’ll be monitoring radar throughout the night to keep an eye on things. Watch for updates on Facebook here.

Some discrete cells may pop up to our southwest this evening, but the bigger complex will likely approach our region any time after 8 PM. If the larger complex stays on track to come into our area, strong winds and heavy rain will be our biggest concern, however we can’t rule out the possibility of an isolated tornado or two.

After the storm threats moves out before tomorrow morning, dangerous heat takes over the forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday. Temperatures will reach the upper 90s, but heat indices will push well above 100. Make sure to take any hot weather precautions on these days, limit time outdoors, and check on those more susceptible to the heat (the elderly, kids, and pets).
