Hot, Humid, and Stormy This Morning

Dangerous Heat Index Values and Strong Storms Possible this Afternoon

First Alert Weather: What to expect 8/13

Once again just like yesterday morning, if you are in northern counties in southern Illinois and southeast Missouri, scattered rain/storms are possible. Frequent lightning, gusty winds, heavy rain, and small hail can occur. There is a small but isolated chance of a storm becoming severe.

The front to our north will move south into the Heartland. During the afternoon, we will need to watch if there is redevelopment with storms along this front. As of this morning, best chances look to be in the early afternoon in our central counties with storms continuing to move into western Kentucky, Tennessee, and the Bootheel through the late afternoon/early evening. These storms will be feeding off a lot of energy which could produce strong to severe storms if they develop. Main impacts will be hail, gusty winds, and heavy rain. Today will be another very hot and humid day with high temperatures ranging in the upper 80s to low 90s. Heat advisory(s) and excessive heat warning(s) will be held across the Heartland through this evening.

The weather will ‘cool’ down and stay dry for most of this week.
