UPDATE:  10:34 P.M.:  Showers are diminishing rapidly with loss of daytime heating.  We are headed for near 60 tonight.  Wouldn’t be surprised to see al little fog develop in places as winds go light.


Compare today’s high temperatures with the high temperature of June 28 of last year!


UPDATE:  6:27 P.M.:  Hail to 0.50″ diameter & gust to 45 mph possible with Pulaski to Fulton County storm, which is working southeast.

Other spotty showers/storms may produce gusts of 30-40 mph.  These are moving southeastward into Benton, White & eventually Tippecanoe & Warren counties.


UPDATE:  5:51 P.M.:  Spotty showers/storms continue pass.  One main area of scattered showers & a few storms is now moving southeast into our northwestern counties.  One cell moving into northern Pulaski County may have pea to marble hail with it.


UPDATE:  4:21 P.M.:  Pea to penny hail with gust to 45 mph possible southwest of Onward, headed for Miami & areas around Bunker Hill & Grissom ARB to Amboy.

A few storms have produced gusts of up to 55 mph in northeast Illinois.  Those scattered storms are working southeastward towards Newton & Jasper counties.


UPDATE:  2:18 P.M.:  Few scattered storms will continue to pop this afternoon.

Isolated severe cannot be ruled out with hail/wind.  Storm in Howard & Miami County has 70% probability of pea to marble hail & may have wind gusts to 50 mph.

    There were beautiful Mary Anne, getting dark and windy now. Hoping for some rain.

    Feels more like an early fall front coming through, than early summer! South of Mulberry is getting purple/grey, but not ominous. The bottoms of the clouds are flat, as if resting on a glass shelf. And it’s cooling off nicely. Almost enough to shiver and wonder if there’s a football game on TV! (What’s wrong with me!)

    @Mary Anne & Teri. I’ve been on the hit side lately of what rain we have gotten. I’m sure before long I’ll move to the miss side and you ladies will get the larger totals. And I’ll be happy for you.
