Late Night/Overnight Storms - Live Doppler 13 Weather Blog

Published:

Severe storms have developed along a cold front just back to our west prompting several warnings through southern Illinois and Missouri this evening.

Radar update just before 8 PM highlighting the Severe Thunderstorm Watch that is in effect for parts of Illinois and Missouri through 10 PM CDT.

Storms are still on track to impact the southern half of the state -- expect them to impact western Indiana first just before midnight.

Storms are not expected to reach severe limits by the time they reach Indiana but could contain heavy rain, strong wind gusts and small hail.

The strongest of the storms come to an end around 3-4 AM as the atmosphere loses a bit of steam.

Lingering garden-variety rain showers will continue for the Monday morning drive -- be prepared for wet pavement and allow extra time for the early commute.

Temperatures hold steady in the low to mid 40s through the morning then only recover into the upper 40s in the afternoon. The sky clears allowing for late afternoon sunshine.

Sunshine dominates for Tuesday but it remains unseasonably chilly with highs in the upper 40s. More mild temps take back over Wednesday as sunshine continues with highs in the upper 50s.

Thursday will feature more clouds and stray showers with highs in the lower 60s.

Our next weather system brings more widespread rain and a chance of a few storms in for Friday into next Saturday. Temperatures will fall from the lower 60s Friday afternoon into the lower 50s to start Saturday and eventually into the 40s Saturday afternoon along a cold front.
