Update

June 21st, 2013 at 5:18 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

Storms have continue to form & gell on outflow boundary of former MCS.  The line is pretty well-formed, but it is unclear how long these storm can sustain themselves, given the conditions much less favorable for storm organization downstream.

Regardless, they are putting out heavy rainfall & a lot of lightning.  Moving south-southeast & southward, hopefully these will bring a good rain to most of the area this evening.  Demand for water is high right now with actively-growing corn, soybeans, grass & vegetation in general.
