Wednesday Severe Storm PotenialJune 3rd, 2014 at 11:30 am by Lindsey Monroe under Weather, WTHI Blog
A tricky storm forecast is setting up for Wednesday with multiple storm “complexes” possibly impacting the Wabash Valley.
Round 1: The first is developing to our west today will move southeast into our furtherest west Illinois counties during the very early morning hours on Wednesday. If it holds together, we could see severe storms throughout the Valley.
Timing: 4 a.m. – 8 a.m. EDT
Threat: Damaging wind gusts and heavy rain
Round 2: Depending on where the first complex of storms fizzles out and if the atmosphere recovers, a second complex of storms could redevelop and intensify Wednesday afternoon. The exact timing and positioning is rather uncertain at this time because a lot depends on the first storm system.
Timing: Approx. 2 p.m. – 8 p.m. EDT
Threat: Damaging wind gusts, large hail, heavy rain (1-2″ with isolated spots up to 3″), flash flooding and rotating thunderstorms
Thunderstorms will push out Wednesday evening and quiet conditions return for Thursday and Friday.
