The National Weather Service has issued this Hazardous Weather Outlook for our entire Illinois listening area
.DAY ONE…TODAY AND TONIGHT… A strong storm system will bring isolated to scattered thunderstorms through afternoon today and an additional 1 to 1.5 inches of rainfall through tonight. There is a marginal to slight risk of severe thunderstorms that may contain hail over 1 inch diameter, wind gusts over 60 mph, and the possibility of an
isolated tornado. Flooding of rivers and streams may develop or increase due to the accumulation of recent rainfall. Flooding will continue on portions of the Wabash River. Minor snow accumulations of less than 1 inch mainly on grassy areas are possible north of I-74 late tonight.
DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY…
Much colder temperatures Thursday night may result in areas of below freezing temperatures that may damage early growth on some fruit trees. Another storm system is possible for Monday. It is too early to determine potential severe weather impacts.
Flooding will continue along the Wabash river upstream of Vincennes through early next week. Flooding may develop on the Little Wabash river near Clay City on Thursday morning.
