Increasing heat, humidity expected today, thunderstorms in store Tuesday

13 August 2019

Temperatures will be much cooler with highs only in the low 80s on Wednesday and Thursday. The Storm Prediction Center has included a heightened risk (enhanced) for a portion of western IN overnight while a large portion of IL and IN are out-looked as a slight risk as well.

Storms look to fire first across the northern half of our area during the early afternoon hours.

Some thunder is also possible, but no severe weather is expected. Highs will be in the mid-to-upper 80s.

There is a chance of precipitation overnight into Tuesday morning, when the possibility of showers and thunderstorms becomes more likely, according to the weather service. If a storm gets fired up along that boundary, it may possibly produce a tornado, strong winds, and hail during the afternoon. The more showers we see early, the lower severe potential later in the day. Damaging winds and large hail are the main threats, the National Weather Service said in a Hazardous Weather Statement issued Monday morning. A few showers are possible overnight, into the Monday morning commute as well.
