With a cold front sagging southward across southern Wisconsin, southern Michigan, northern Illinois, and northern Indiana today some showers and t’storms will develop along the front this afternoon. Better coverage looks to be across southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois. This is also where some strong to severe storms will be possible with damaging winds, hail, and perhaps a couple of tornadoes could develop this afternoon/evening.
To the south across central Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio, a few isolated showers or storms could pop-up this afternoon/evening with the heat of the day. However, with the strong ridge of high pressure these look to be isolated.
With the heat and humidity in place it will be very hot out there. Heat Indexes will rise into the mid 90’s to lower 100’s this afternoon!
The cold front continues to push southward tonight through Sunday evening. While coverage doesn’t look to be all that great, isolated to widely scattered storms will remain possible across the region Sunday. Rainfall will be hit and miss over the next couple of days. While some locations could see 2″ or more, other locations will see nothing. It will all be dependent on where t’storms develop and track.
