Severe weather Sunday occurred as close to our area as Champaign County, Illinois with trees & powerlines down & gust to 68 mph measured at the University of Illinois-Williard Airport.  There were actually three gusts +60 mph measured in a 7-minute period with the t'storm (63 mph, 67 mph, 68 mph).

In the viewing area, some small hail was reported with gusts measured to 50 mph.

On Sunday, the severe weather was clustered around the Indianapolis area with multiple trees & powerlines down on the west side of Indy.

On Saturday, severe weather was northwest or southeast of the viewing area with 21 tornado reports from the Illinois area.  There were also a series of impressive microbursts around Joliet, Illinois with winds up to 95 mph. 

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

A few storms are possible today with 35% coverage with clouds/sun.

Given intense heating & waterloading, I can't rule out an isolated severe storm.  It would tend to be in the form of an isolated microburst with potential of some sub-severe hail.  These storm will tend to pulse up & collapse.  In that collapsing process, a random, sudden microburst cannot be ruled out.  Quick, very heavy rainfall would occur as well.

Highs of 85-92 are likely with humid to muggy conditions.  Heat indices should run 90-100.

There may be a few more than what the model indicates.

Some scattered showers & storms are possible Wednesday morning, then a lull, followed by a few more in the afternoon.

It will continue to be muggy.

Coverage should average 45%.

Highs will run in the 80s.

Some showers, followed by some scattered showers & storms are possible Thursday with highs near 80 to the 80s.

It will continue to be muggy.

Some showers & storms are possible Friday before 2 p.m. with highs 75-82. Humidity will decrease in the afternoon with clearing skies & a northwest wind up to 25 mph.

Sunshine & diurnal cumulus clouds mixed will dominated next weekend with cooler & less humid weather.  Highs of 71-77 are likely with lows 45-52.

I suppose you could call it Blackberry Winter!

Monday-most of next Friday of next week currently looks dry & becoming breezy to windy from the southwest.  Highs will head for 87-92 again with lows 60s to 70.  Heat indices may reach 92-100.

Lots of severe weather will occur Manitoba to Nebraska.  We look dominated by an upper ridge.

Storms may affects us Friday evening-Saturday.  Severe weather risk is possible.
