Broken line of storms approaching northern & northeastern areas, but will eventually collapse.

Broken line of storms sinkging southeastward.  Strongest storms approaching northeastern Pulaski & all of Fulton counties with gusts to 50 mph possible in the most-intense cores.

Other storms are moving toward northern Newton & Jasper counties.  Any current warnings (Chicago & Elkhart areas) are well outside of our area.  Only an isolated severe storm is possible in our north as storms pass.

Latest high-resolution model data shows the broken line gusting out & collapsing along/north of U.S. 24 as it encounters more & more CINH or capping layer (largely from sinking air aloft) on the move to the southeast.

However, it should erode later tonight & as some moisture convergence occurs along the outflow boundary from this line of storms, a few may re-fire in the heart of the area very late tonight & through tomorrow morning.

Some patchy fog could also occur.

The latest models are picking up on this.

With 84-88 & high humidity (will feel more like 91-95) tomorrow, clouds should bubble up scattered showers & storms.  An isolated severe storm or two cannot be ruled out.  Winds will be southwesterly at 8-11 mph.

The outflow boundary, combined with a weak surface cold front & little shortwave will help to trigger the rainfall in the form of perhaps a couple of broken lines.  This, after a few showers/storms in the morning (mentioned above).
