Stronger storms north, before cooler Monday

Much of our area under a Slight (Level 2 of 5) risk for Sunday evening. A few tornadoes along with scattered damaging winds and large hail will be possible into tonight from the Mid-Mississippi to Lower Ohio Valleys.

There is also a Tornado Watch in effect for northern portions of our viewing area until 10 p.m. Sunday.


A bulk of the strong to severe storms look to move through central Illinois into Sunday night, as seen through Stormcast below. The best chances to see these storms will be near and along the I-64 corridor. Some of our instability may be limited from cloud cover earlier on, but storms with large hail and damaging winds will be possible as this continues east.

Sun 10p

There may be some southern spots that miss out on rain completely, but a few scattered storms south of the main action will be possible as well. Any of these could still be strong or borderline severe as well. This will be happening along a front moving through, wiping out the moisture and humidity for the days to come.

Sun Later

The Skeeter Meter for that reason will fall to the “Medium” category for both Monday and Tuesday. Moisture should return by Wednesday, as do the storm chances.

Skeeter Meter 2

The first part of the week should remain fairly quiet. It won’t be until the middle and end of the week that we’ll see more support for showers and thunderstorms.
