10:26 P.M. Update

July 12th, 2014 at 10:06 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

Line continues to congeal to our northwest.  Watch was considered for Newton, Jasper, Benton per SPC.

Some strong to severe gusts are possible tonight, but they look scattered in the area.  Regardless, threat will be there.  Isolated tornado cannot be ruled out either.

We are not overly unstable, but a reservoir of potent instability for storms resides in Illinois after a very hot, humid day.  St. Louis hit 97.  Dew points reached upper 70s this evening in eastern Illinois.

Given the very high dew points coming in from Illinois, locally-heavy rainfall is a possibility overnight.  Some flash flooding is possible.
