The first of two storm systems zips past the state Wednesday morning with a few showers early. Storm system number two is getting its stuff together down in Texas.
That one is the more potent player, tapping into upper air energy that will yield big breezes and the potential for severe storms Thursday evening.
A High Wind Watch is already in place for much of central Indiana for non-thunderstorm wind gusts to 50 mph late Thursday night.
There is also a risk of severe weather in some of the state late Thursday afternoon and evening.
