Here is a quick update.

Nearly all of the severe weather reports from this evening came from Fountain County with the area between Newtown & Hillsboro reportedly hit the hardest with winds of 70-80 mph.

A few storms are still firing on tail end of earlier bow of storms that formed.  This was courtesy of MCV & outflow boundary coming out of Illinois.

These may hang on for a while & even move northeastward some before fading overnight.

A few new storms will fire tomorrow, but the better coverage looks to stay just south of our area.

Nonetheless, an isolated severe storm or two cannot be ruled out.

Highs of 89-93 are likely with heat indices of 96-103.

Model data does have MCS blowing up, but keeps it well west & southwest of our area Tuesday.

I am leary of this notion; I think it could be here.

At this point, I still find it hard to believe that nothing would fire here given the likelihood of an MCV & outflow boundary coming into the area.  I suppose Tuesday's storm risk will hinge on what MCS development occurs upstream to our northwest Monday evening-night.

We will monitor.

It looks like a hot, muggy day with highs 90-93 & heat indices 98-105.


Some storms are possible Wednesday, followed by burst of cooler, less humid air to end the week, but next weekend may turn very warm to hot, muggy & occasionally stormy again.
