Isolated damaging winds could whip Indianapolis and other parts of the Hoosier State on Sunday as gusty midsection thunderstorms shift east.

Greatest threat for any potentially damaging winds will unfold from west to east between mid-morning and late afternoon, when a cold front will make its way into the relatively warm, humid spread across the state.

Even away from any thunderstorms, gusty winds will blow from the south and southwest, gusting 30 to 40 mph throughout the state.

Higher localized gusts capable of minor damage will reach 50 to 60 mph in and near stronger showers, not necessarily thunderstorms.

Agent for the unsettled weather will be a vigorous midwestern low, dragging its cold front through Indiana as it tracks through the Great Lakes region today and tonight.
