8:45 PM Weather Update: Hanging Up Line & Severe Risk

Storms continue in the area.

Can see us on far edge of some stronger winds aloft.  Notice some bows/bulges in the line Cass to Fulton & storm with supercell characteristics on tail end of the line in eastern Illinois near Champaign. Only severe report I have received is estimated 58 mph gust on 65 between Remington & US 231 with complete "white out" of sheets of rain.  Also had report of pea hail near Remington with a "gully-washer of a rain".

Roof was blown off building & trees & power poles are down west of Hoopeston, Illinois.

Flood Advisory is up for Pulaski County.

Severe risk & localized flash flooding risk continues.

Merging of storms into a line should continue with it sagging southeastward.  An eventual gusting out & weakening of the line in our far, far S/SE areas is likely early tonight.  However, storms may train on back edge of the line from Lafayette & into our western counties for a bit, resulting in locally-heavy, flash flood-producing rainfall.

See how line sags southeastward, but tail end gets hung up in the Lafayette area to western half?  This means heavy rainfall.
