Some productive storms today! Abundant lighting, heavy downpours, gusts to 65-70 MPH, 1.5" hail and minor flooding have been reported! A radar estimated inch and a half fell near Chicago! At least one tornado was reported today by a trained weather spotter in Crawford Co, AR. And there's already a thin band of snow on the backside of the system out west! For us, that line of rain showers & storms will be on our grid by mid-morning. Like we've said, heavy downpours, winds gusting to 30 or even 40 MPH are possible throughout the day & into the evening on Wednesday. Little bit of minor flash flooding is also possible into Wednesday evening. As colder temps mix in behind the front, we'll get in on some snow with minor accumulations by Thursday morning. We'll be back in the 20s and low 30s...teens for lows by the weekend!
