MCV is over south-central IL with outflow boundary draped in our southern counties. Another MCV is near Chicago.
Temperatures are in the 80s to as high as 90 as of 1 p.m. Heat indices are as high as 100. Winds are northwest north of the outflow boundary & southwest south of it.
There is one storm west of Danville, IL & some others along I-70 south of our area.
It is quite capped currently & should remain so through the afternoon.
A few isolated storms may poke through with nearby MCVs & outflow boundary.
Any storm that can completely breach it could go severe, but there will not be many storms.
Highs should run 87-93 with heat indices in the 90s to as high as 106.
Outflow boundary(ies) will be laid up over the area & nearby Tuesday, but it looked extremely capped with a lot of upper ridging.
A couple/few isolated storms are possible with isolated severe risk.
Highs will run 90-95 with heat indices 97-110.
Weak front setting up in the vicinity with less capping will result in scattered storms Wednesday. Isolated severe storms are possible.
Highs will run 88-94 with heat indices in the upper 90s to as high as 110 with oppressive dew points of 75-78.
Thursday to Sunday will feature daily scattered storms with isolated severe risk at times, along with locally-heavy rainfall.
Highs will run int he 80s & 90s with oppressive dew points in the 70s.
It should finally turn completely dry by next Monday with highs near 85 & lows near 64.
We should heat up again mid to late next week with high humidity, upper 80s to 90s & 70s dew points.
Scattered storms will also return. The storms actually look more organized Tuesday & Wednesday evenings of next week, which may mean higher severe risk as some slightly better wind fields in the troposphere skim by the area.
