Round #1 of storms is moving out of the viewing, but round #2 is congealing in the hot sunshine in our northwestern areas & toward Chicago (where there have been Severe T'Storm Warnings).

This second round will continue to congeal into a bow/cluster with torrential rainfall & the potential of a random isolated strong to severe gust due to waterloading (weight of the tremendous rainfall in the storm actually forcing stronger gusts to the surface) & some slightly better wind fields at mid & lower levels there.

Watch for areas of flash flooding as you go home from work.

Rainfall will definitely variable over the area, but there will be areas that have a daily total at +4" by tonight.  Some spots have recieved +3" so far, but it is extremely variable as of 3:21 p.m., as you can see in the second graphic below.  Heaviest totals will tend to be in the western/southwestern half of the area (Jasper to Benton to Tippecanoe counties & southwestward).

Core of intense wind & rain is dropping out of storm northwest of Kentland with gusts likely +50 mph.  This core is moving southeastward.  Another core appears to be developing northwest of that one.  Such isolated water-loaded cores will be monitored all late afternoon-evening.
