A disturbance moving through the region today into tonight will bring the chance for severe t'storms to portions of the state. Ample clearing and destabilization is ongoing across the state today. Scattered showers and t'storms have started to develop across portions of Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri and Northern Illinois. This activity, in the form of several clusters, will then push eastward across the Northern and portions of Central Illinois, this afternoon through tonight. An environment will be in place across the state featuring moderate instability, good moisture, limited forcing and low shear. This will lead to upwards of a minimal severe t'storm threat across much of the state, potentially even a limited threat across Northwest Illinois where a somewhat better environment will exist. Damaging winds and large hail will be the main threats.
Further south, more isolated showers and t'storms will be possible across Southern Illinois, this afternoon into tonight. Though an organized severe t'storm threat is not expected, a stray strong to severe t'storm may be possible.
Below is the severe t'storm forecast for this afternoon - tonight.
