Clouds will be on the increase tonight & will slowly thicken.  Lows will run in the mid 60s.

We are fair game for scattered showers & storms to come in late morning to afternoon.  An isolated severe storm is possible as stronger wind fields & shear begin to catch up to the storms by midday-afternoon.

These will tend to be off/on in the area.

There will be a nice breeze all day with southeast winds sustained at 10-15 mph with gusts to 23 mph

Showers/storms are likely right through afternoon, evening & into tomorrow night.  Isolated severe storm or two will still be possible.  Although the better severe threat will be to our south, strong enough wind fields & shear with some instability will lead to that "Marginal Risk" of severe.

Main threats are isolated wind & hail, followed by low brief tornado risk.  Some pockets of quick +1.75" locally-heavy rainfall are possible.

EHI is a measure of severe risk if storm are present.  Here it is below:

Over totals will be variable at 0.50-1.50" with some isolated +2" amounts by Tuesday.

Scattered showers & a few t'showers are likely Thursday with lots of clouds & highs only in the 70s.

Wednesday looks good with partly cloudy skies (after perhaps low clouds & some fog in the morning) with highs in the 70s & low Wednesday night near 50 to the mid 50s!

Thursday looks great with highs in the 70s to 80 with lows near 50, through the 50s.

Friday will likely feature increasing high/mid clouds as warm front moves northward & we pick up this cloudiness off complex of showers & storms in Iowa & northern Illinois.  Highs will run near 80 to the lower 80s, followed by 60s Friday night.

With the warm front lifting northward, next Saturday looks to turn more humid with a round of showers & storms & highs near 80 to the mid 80s.

Dry, very warm to hot & humid weather looks to dominate Sunday with highs in the upper 80s to around 90.

Heat moving in late next weekend & beyond:
