CENTRAL ILLINOIS -- An approaching storm system will trigger strong to severe thunderstorms across portions of central Illinois today. The timing looks to be late afternoon and into the evening (4 PM until 10 PM). The entire WAND-TV viewing area falls under a “Slight” or “Marginal” risk for severe weather. Our main threats will include damaging wind gusts (all of central Illinois) and large hail (mainly north of I-74), although isolated tornadoes can’t be ruled out especially for areas to the northwest of a line from Springfield to Bloomington.
Keep updated on this evening’s potential for severe weather on the WAND Weather Page.
