We continue to warm in the area with current temperatures 52-66 northeast to south.  Fulton County is the coolest area with 52-55.

Tippecanoe County temperatures are 60-66 right now from north to south. 

It is 66 from Terre Haute & Paris, Illinois Airports, through Covington to the Purdue Airport now.  Decatur, Illinois is now 66 with a high dew point of 63.  Covington dew point is a juicy 65, as is the dew point at the Paris, IL airport.  Purdue Airport dew point is 61.

Dew point is 62 at the Frankfort Airport (temperature 64).

Certainly a spring feel is overspreading the area.

We will continue to warm up from the south & winds will increase this evening.

Two corridors of widespread severe storm risk:

1.  Iowa to northern Illinois

2.  Arkansas to southern Indiana

South of our area, supercells, LEWPs & bows should train over the same areas this evening & into tonight with tornado, wind, hail & flooding risk.

Iowa to Illinois will feature tornado, wind, hail risk with flooding risk, as well from supercells & clusters of supercells.

As for us, some scattered storms are likely with a couple to few supercells possible.  An isolated tornado or two, couple severe gusts &/or hail are possible, along with brief heavy rainfall. 

With temperatures 60s to 70 & dew points 60-65 here, watch for any warning issuance & weather-aware tonight.

More widespread risk is northwest & south of us, indeed.  However, SLIGHT RISK is up for the area for the scattered storms & afformentioned risks involved tonight.

Watches & warnings (including Tornado Warnings) are lining up from southern Illinois to Arkansas & over southern Iowa to northern Missouri & southeastern Nebraska.

After clearing & windy weather with warmth, front goes through in the morning with line of gusty showers.  Then temperatures should tank for the rest of the day.

Enjoy the warmth now through tonight & tomorrow morning & be weather-aware regarding our SLIGHT RISK for severe weather.
