Here is the latest on storm trends tonight & next week.

Highs today reached 86-93 with heat indices peaking at 91-106 after low temperatures for today (some occurring with the storms) at 69-75.

Sinking air behind Laura has completely collapsed any cumulus area-wide by 8-9 p.m.  So, any slight bit of additional storm development this evening completely ended at that point.  Complete lull will definitely continue for a few more hours.

This, after measured t'storm gusts of 46 mph at Flora, 50 mph northeast of Greentown & 44 mph just west of Rochester with some areas seeing +2" rain.

As the sinking air departs behind Laura & +60 mph mid-level jet moves in after midnight (with increasing low-level jet, up to 2000 J/kg ML CAPE & a surface cold front & upper trough), storm develop is likely along & just ahead of the cold in the form of a broken line.

There is still the risk of a few severe storms with a wind & brief, isolated tornado threat.  This would generally be in the 2 a.m. to 8 a.m. time frame for the area.

SPC has MARGINAL RISK of severe weather up for the viewing area for the overnight to early morning hours.

The weekend is good, then front comes back north as a warm front next week.

Some showers are storms are possible Monday evening-night, then again late Tuesday afternoon-evening-night & again Wednesday later & Thursday.

A corridor of severe weather risk will exist from Kansas, northeastern Oklahoma & northern Arkansas initially, then to far southern Indiana & Kentucky in the Sunday to Tuesday time frame.  SLIGHT to ENHANCED RISK will go to MARGINAL TO SLIGHT Sunday-Tuesday west to east.

Some severe weather risk may make it into our area in the Wednesday-Thursday time frame from our area to Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia & Pennsylvania.  Parameters suggests MARGINAL to SLIGHT RISK.

Cooler weather will follow, followed by warm-up with severe risk, then a big cool-down with below normal temperatures in mid-September (widespread lows down to 40 to the 40s).
