We’ve gotten a few reports of pea sized hail in Ogle County around the Leaf River and Forreston areas fromĀ  a cluster of thunderstorms. These will continue to move through the Rockford Mero through 5pm and then through the evening for Ogle and Lee Counties. Small hail is possible through the afternoon. No widespread severe weather is expected.
