Threat For Severe StormsApril 10th, 2013 at 9:06 am by Lindsey Monroe under Weather
Today: Cloudy, warm and windy conditions continue today. High temperatures will reach near 80° this afternoon with winds out of the southwest up to 20 mph. A good portion of the Wabash Valley will stay dry during the afternoon hours today with a chance of an isolated shower to the north along a stalled frontal boundary.
Tonight: A cold front will approach the Valley during the overnight hours tonight bringing heavy rainfall and thunderstorms. Some storms have the potential to reach severe limits with damaging wind gusts and large hail. Heavy rain from 1-2″could produce localized flooding as well. Timing…. the line of storms will move into western IL just after midnight and impact our area mainly after 2 a.m. through early Thursday morning.
Tomorrow: The threat for severe weather comes to an end by Thursday morning and much cooler air filters in. Highs tomorrow will only be in the mid 60s. Lingering rain showers will be possible.
Extended Outlook: We’ll see a drastic change in temperatures from today to Friday. Highs will only be in the lower 50s for the end of the week and first part of the weekend. We’ll see a warm-up by Sunday that will continue into next week with rain chances returning as well.
