Remnant MCV in Illinois & outflow boundary over part of the viewing area caused a few isolated storms to breach the cap & go up this evening.

One did warrant a Severe T'Storm Warning for Warren & Fountain counties.  A gust of 59 mph was measured across the state line at the Danville-Vermilion County Airport, in the northern part of that county.

Remnant MCV & Pontiac, IL to Indy outflow boundary are around, so a couple more isolated storms may continue tonight.

As for Sunday, this, with MCV from complex of severe storms well northwest of our area tonight-tomorrow morning, will result in a scattering of pulsey storms Sunday.

A couple/few may go severe with damaging wet downbursts &/or severe hail, given the environment of high CAPE, low shear & CAPE concentrating before storms overcome capping (think of holding a beach ball under water in a pool, then suddenly taking your hands off of it & watching pop out of the water, then go back down to rest on top.  These storms will behave similarly.

They will go way up, really fast once cap is breached, belch out wind, heavy rain & hail, then collapse, as new storms form downstream of it with the process continuing.

High will run 89-95 with heat index 95-105.

Same thing will occur Monday as another MCV comes in from the northwest & outflow boundary will be laid up in the area.

A couple isolated storms are possible Tuesday, followed by scattered storms Wednesday, July 3-Saturday, July 6 with hot, humid weather.  Daily highs will run in the upper 80s to lower 90s with humidity increasing to dew points well into the 70s.  This will lead to heat indices daily near 100 to as high as 110.  Overnight lows will run near 70 to the mid 70s.

Some isolated severe risk & locally-heavy, flash flood-producing rainfall is likely at times.
