There is lots of sun appearing northeast & southwest of our area, but it is cloudy in the heart of the viewing area now as a weakening, remnant MCS from storms lastnight to our west & southwest pivots through.
You can clearing see another over Iowa!
A few showers linger over the area with this MCV after some showers & storms overnight to early morning. However, the flooding rainfall overnight was southwest of the area.
Temperatures range from 69-80 over the area as of 1 p.m. They are warmest where the sun is appearing.
Data continues to show end to any showers & thinning of clouds today for sun area-wide. Temperatures should warm nicely to 78-84 with increasing humidity to dew points around 70-72.
It seems unlikely that anything new, in terms of rainfall, will develop this evening & into part of tonight.
However, a wave of some scattered showers & storms looks possible tonight to Sunday morning before exiting.
This will tend to occur on the leading edge of a surge of heat coming in behind the warm front.
Once this passes, it should heat up to 85-90 tomorrow. This, with heat indices in the 75-78 range, will result in 95-105 heat indices. These will be the highest of the year so far. The highest readings of the year up to today have been 88-96 over the area.
We will wave MCV pivot out of Illinois, which may still ignite storms in the area. Severe weather is possible Sunday afternoon to evening.
Severe weather is possible Monday with some periodic showers & storms around with 80s & high humidity.
A total of 1-3" of rainfall is possible for the area from what we saw last
Tuesday & Wednesday look dry with 80s, but around 90 with high humidity will arrive Thursday-Friday with storms possible Wednesday night &/or Thursday as a "Ridge Rider" may impact the area.
