Highs today reached 82-90 with heat indices peaking at 86-97.

MCV-induced, large complex of storms is moving through.

Worst of it is with right-turning bow riding instability gradient in southern Illinois to southwest Indiana.

The nearest damage to our area so far is in Iroqouis & Livingston counties in Illinois.  Chatsworth has taken the brunt of it (40 miles west of  Kentland) with widespread wind damage to homes & outbuildings, trees & powerlines in a storm that was also accompanied by hail up to golfball size.

Isolated storm of concern is the storm in the comma head of the MCV near Hoopeston. 

It has prompted Severe T'Storm Warnings. 

A 60 mph wind core is evident in the storm.  This storm is 70 miles from the Lincoln radar, which would equate to around 5,000' up with the beam being about 6,000' wide at that point. 

Wind core is pretty low & may have a window to belch out of the storm.

Projection for the overnight to early Thursday morning below......................(also, a brief bout of winds gusting +30 mph are possible tonight on the backside of the center of the MCV over our area).

Other than a couple isolated showers/storm Thursday or Friday, there is not much going on after tonight (just largely partly cloudy skies).  There may be some patchy fog tomorrow night to early Friday morning.

Highs Thursday should reach 85-90 with heat indices 89-97, followed by 89-95 Friday with heat indices 94-103.

Saturday looks just partly cloudy with highs 92-97 with heat indices 96-106 with an isolated storm or two possible.

Sunday & Monday currently look completely capped & dry, but a couple of "Ridge Riders" may track just north & northeast of our area.  Highs of 95-100 are likely with heat indcies 101-116.

Tuesday-Thursday looks more active as we will be in the "Ring of Fire" with multiple complexes of storms or "Ridge Riders" possible.

Some severe weather is possible.

Temperatures will drop to the 80s at the end of next week as a cold front sinks southward through the area.

Heat may overspread the area again in the last days of July before storms.  Then, a more sustained cool down is possible in early August.

However, another heat wave may return in mid-August.

Overall, August looks warmer than normal.

Rainfall is on the edge of drier & wetter than normal.
