The National Weather Service is investigating reports of two possible tornadoes southwest Indiana after spring storms moved through the state.

Preliminary reports indicate a tornado may have hit the Evansville area on Tuesday. The weather service office in Paducah, Kentucky, sent a damage survey team to the area on Wednesday. The team tweeted about what it saw early in the investigation.
 


Forecasters in Indianapolis say another possible tornado damaged a barn Tuesday evening, near the town of Worthington. Indianapolis forecasters are investigating that report.
 

 

Thunderstorms developed Tuesday in Indiana as a cold front moved into the central part of the state. The storms produced large hail.

Forecasters are predicting more stormy weather in parts of the Midwest and South but strong tornadoes are looking less likely.

The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma, says an area stretching from New Orleans to central Illinois could see scattered storms with strong winds and hail on Wednesday. Severe thunderstorm watches have been issued for parts of Louisiana and Mississippi, where forecasters say wind gusts of up to 75 mph are possible.

But the Storm Prediction Center says the overall storm risk is lower than on Tuesday, when forecasters warned that conditions were ripe for a severe weather outbreak.
