Temperatures as of 5 p.m. are 75-82 over the viewing area.
Severe T'Storm Watch is up for much of Illinois right now until 10 p.m. Eastern Time.
Severe weather timing is generally 7-10 p.m. Storms should race east-southeast to southeast at up to 60 mph!
Highest risk is in our southwestern & southern counties with ENHANCED.
SLIGHT is as far north as Enos to Remington to Monticello to Galveston & Greentown, however.
Main threat is hail/wind evolving to more just wind.
Dry layer below steepening lapse rates may bring narrow, sustained corridor of pretty intense winds with gusts potentially +70 mph in area of highest CAPE in our southwest.
Supercells with large to very large hail & some wind will occur in Illinois & evolved into bowling line of storms with more & more of a wind threat with time as they move east-southeastward & southeastward from Illinois into & through our area.
After a few showers around midnight, we should clear with lows of 36-42, but north-northwest to north winds +40 mph & sustained winds at 15-25 mph will result in wind chills to 24-31 by morning!
We should cloud up with a few isolated p.m. rain/snow showers tomorrow with 45-51 midday after a sunny morning. Temperatures should fall to 40-46 by late afternoon.
Winds chill will be cold all day.
Northwest winds may gust 40-50 mph at times. I would not rule out an isolated +50 mph gust.
Lows tomorrow night of 28-34 are likely with still gusty winds to 32 mph bringing wind chills down to 15-25!
