Tonight’s weather story from the National Weather Service:
Severe thunderstorms possible Wednesday
(June 3, 2014) – We are monitoring the potential for severe thunderstorms on Wednesday. Severe thunderstorms are expected to track east-southeast across Nebraska and Iowa this evening and through northern Missouri and Illinois tonight. These storm are expected to weaken before they track into Indiana late overnight into tomorrow morning. These weakened storms could produce heavy rainfall across portions of the area on Wednesday.
Right now, the best chances for precipitation and heavy rainfall are south of U.S. 30. The focus then turns to the potential for severe thunderstorms during the day into the evening hours on Wednesday. Right now, the best chances for severe weather look to be south of our forecast area, but areas southeast of U.S. 24 in our forecast area are on the northern edge of the severe weather potential. Large hail, damaging winds, and isolated tornadoes are all possible with any severe thunderstorms on Wednesday. There is still some uncertainty with the location of the severe weather potential, as much of the risk will depend on the evolution of the upstream storm complex overnight.
