Showers & isolated thunder continue in the area with muggy conditions.

Moisture of tropical origins, some the rainfall rates are high in the area, so watch for hydroplaning in the heaviest showers, as a quick 1" is possible.

Periods of scattered showers & storms will be with us the rest of the day & into tonight.

There is the risk of an isolated severe storm or two at times 5 p.m. to 5 a.m. as a couple of potent shortwave eject our of Missouri & through Illinois to our area.

Temperatures 70-75 with dew points 70-75 with cooling temperatures aloft, deep tropical moisture & decent directional shear may result in an embedded severe storm or two in broken lines, bands & clusters of rainfall pivoting around upper low tracking Minnesota to Wisconsin.

The isolated threat would be wind &/or brief tornado.

Locally-heavy rainfall is possible.

As a result, SPC has a MARGINAL RISK of severe weather for the viewing area.

Any rainfall will be confined to tomorrow morning, followed by a clearing trend tomorrow afternoon with highs in the 80s.  It will still be rather humid with dew points of 64-70.  Dew points will not drop to a more tolerable 60-63 until evening.

Winds will turn to the west at 10-20 mph tomorrow.

Some clouds & an isolated shower are possible Tuesday night with lows near 60 as a secondary cold front comes through.

Wednesday looks good with partly cloudy skies, lower humidity & a high near 81 with a nice west wind at 15-25 mph, followed by 54-58 Wednesday night as wind diminish.
