Surface Map valid 5:00 PM EDT April 10
Surface Map and Radar at about 5:00 PM EDT April 10

A nearly stationary front across central Indiana provided the focus for severe weather during the afternoon of April 10. Severe storms brought large hail to mainly the northern half of central Indiana, with hail reports as large as 2 inches in diameter. The storms also brought heavy rain to the area, which caused some localized flooding problems. Later during the night, a line of thunderstorms associated with a potent cold front moved through, bringing gusty winds and more heavy rain. Rainfall totals over 3 inches were recorded in some locations across the northern section of central Indiana.
