Any showers/storms with the warm front will exit by this afternoon.  Skies will clear & it will become windy, hot & humid.

It is 70-77 over the area now, but mid 80s in central Illinois behind warm front.

We are headed for 88-94 eventually with heat indices 95-104.

MCV is evident in northeastern Iowa, which will serve as focus for line of severe storms this evening-tonight.

This will tend to impact the viewing area in the 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. time frame (12 a.m. to 2 a.m. in the heart of the viewing area).

Severe gusts are possible, largely in the northern half of the area (see below).

The ENHANCED RISK for severe weather goes right to the Kankakee River on the Jasper-Porter County line.

There is a SLIGHT RISK of severe weather along & north of a Pine Village to Battle Ground to Burlington to Kokomo line with MARGINAL RISK for the remaining part of the viewing area.

A bow of enhanced, widespread, intense damaging winds is likely in the ENHANCED area.

Outflow boundary from storms here tonight will serve as focus for new storms southeast & east of us Saturday.

However, MCV in Missouri, moving to Illinois will serve as a trigger for some renewed scattered storm development in the afternoon-evening.

Highs of 85-90 are likely with heat indices 90-97.

There is the risk of isolated severe weather with a wind & hail threat with MARGINAL RISK of severe weather forecast by SPC.

A more concentrated corridor of severe may result in upgrades to SLIGHT southeast & south of our area.

There isn't much on Sunday.  Storms will struggle & we will have Saharan dust giving us a hazy sky.

I went for 25% coverage of storms with highs 87-91 with heat indices 94-98 with partly cloudy skies.

Intense heat will arrive next week & last into next weekend. 

July 4th looks hot & humid with highs 92-98 with heat indices 97-109, currently.

Even Sunday, July 5, 2 p.m. temperatures are projected at 93-98 with intenese heat wave across the Midwest.  Some 100 readings are likely in the Midwest & Great Lakes with dangerous heat indices to 115 in places.

Other than an isolated storm, we are dry, capped, very hot with the main corridor of storms (severe) running from Montana to North Dakota, northern Minnesota & across southern Saskatchewan, Manitoba to western Ontario & northern New England.

It does look like we will get a weak cold front through around the July 7-8 period with some storms.  This will bring some brief relief with highs 84-90 & low humidity.
