More rough weather coming Wednesday evening

CaptureThe threat of severe weather has come and gone tonight. After a round of strong thunderstorms between 8-9pm, our atmosphere is quieting down considerably. For a time, there was even a Tornado Warning for Grundy and Will County, southwest of Joliet. However, this activity has moved into Northern Indiana. And with little to our west and an atmosphere worked over by storms 45,000 feet tall, I’m going to take our Threatrack down to Level 1 for the remainder of the night. It will remain muggy though with temperatures only falling into the middle 60s.

Severe weather will remain possible for Central Illinois overnight, mgWeb_WRF_20130528-210000_AGrLk_ECONUS_F00270000_PwinterThickness_R4kmalong with a threat for more flash flooding.

Looking ahead to the day Wednesday. It will remain warm and humid. This is a snapshot of the RPM model for 7pm. It’s an ominous picture with a simulated radar showing supercellular thunderstorms. With this type of scenario, large hail and isolated tornadoes will be possible. But most of the day is expected to be dry. This threat will exist only in the late afternoon and evening hours…much like Tuesday’s storms.

We won’t be able to rest easy after that because we’re in an area favorable for additional severe weather on Thursday! THREATRACKHere is a look at the Storm Prediction Center outlook with a slight risk taking up much of the Upper Midwest. It’s definitely time to be weather-aware! -Eric
