Strong Storms Possible Wednesday Night/Early Thursday Morning

Posted:

Central Illinois- A developing low pressure system across the central Plains will start to push east on Wednesday. A windy, cloudy, but mild afternoon can be expected with highs in the lower to middle 60s. 

WAND-TV Chief Meteorologist JC Fultz says a cold front will approach Wednesday night into Thursday morning helping fire a line of storms. Fultz says the timing looks to be between 11 PM Wednesday night to 4 AM Thursday morning.

The right dynamics will be in place to produce the potential for gusty winds with the line of storms. The Storm Prediction Center has placed all of central Illinois in the marginal risk area for some strong storms. The greatest potential for severe weather looks to remain to the south across southern Missouri and into Arkansas. Rainfall totals could range from .25" to .50" as the quick moving nature of the storms will limit the amount of precipitation.

Meteorologist Kevin Chierek will be in with the latest on WAND News Today beginning at 5 AM.
