Posted: Oct 11, 2021 8:12 AM

(WLFI) – Storm Team 18 will be tracking the potential for strong to severe storms Monday late afternoon and into the evening.
A cold front is expected to roll through giving us a chance for strong to severe storms after 4:00 PM this afternoon and into this evening.

Below is everything you need to know to stay ahead of the storms tonight.

As of 8:00 AM this morning, the Storm Prediction Center has all of the Greater Lafayette Area underneath a Slight Risk Level 2 (out of 5) for strong storms.


TIMING:

2:00 PM – Storms will begin to fire in Illinois. For us here in Greater Lafayette, some sunshine will help energize the atmosphere in aiding severe weather development.



4:00-6:00 PM – Strong to severe storms will begin to enter our western counties. Some of these storms could produce heavy rain, lightning, damaging winds, hail, and an isolated tornado.



6:00-10:00 PM – Scattered storms will be likely after the first line moves through. Some of these storms could easily produce damaging wind, very heavy rainfall, and a low tornado threat.



9:00-12:00 AM – A secondary line of sub-severe storms will likely form right ahead of the cold front. Heavy rain and damaging winds are possible. Lightning will be a threat with any storm.



IMPACTS:

Damaging winds (60-75 mph) and heavy rainfall will be the main threats to many of the storms tonight. Given that we will have spin in the lower levels, isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out as well as hail (half an inch or less). Rainfall amounts of 0.25-0.75" are expected across our area with isolated totals over 1.00" with the stronger storms.
