(WTHI) – Tuesday will begin warm and windy. Sunshine and a few clouds are expected throughout the day. Southwest wind gusts could reach up to 25-35 mph at times during the afternoon.

Strong to Severe Storms Tonight

  • TIMING
    • 4-5 PM - a line of storms will be rolling through portions of Northern Illinois.

    • 5-7 PM – The line of storms will begin to work into our Northwestern Counties (Newton, Jasper, Benton, Pulaski). A few severe thunderstorm warnings will not be out of the question.

    • 7-9 PM – Storms will be ongoing moving southeast into the entire WLFI viewing area. Notice a more broken line which indicates the storms will begin to weaken as they reach the central portions of the viewing area.

    • 9 PM to 1 AM Wednesday – The line will slowly begin to slow down and become less severe as it works southeast of our region.

  • THREATS

The Storm Prediction Center (as of Tuesday Morning) has most of the Northeast areas underneath a Stage 2 (Slight Risk) for severe weather.
The southern half will be under Stage 1 (Marginal Risk) for severe weather.

Damaging wind and large hail will be the main threats.

There will be a low tornado threat but wind profiles based on modeled Skew-T runs have more of a straight-line wind threat.

Once the front passes through by Midnight tonight into Wednesday morning, we will have dry and cooler air work in for Wednesday and Thursday.
Temperatures ramp up by the weekend with upper 80s and low 90s by Saturday and Sunday with little to no rain chances for the rest of the 7-day.
