⚠️HEAT/HUMIDITY NEXT WEEK⚠️

The first oppressive heat of the season will move in next week with upper 80s and low 90s likely by next Tuesday.

While the first 90 degree days are going to be uncomfortable already, the humidity will make it much worse. Dew points in the 70s are likely which will make it feel incredibly sticky and oppressive.

This heat is something we’re not use to yet, so take precautions and get yard work done this weekend. Avoid outdoor activities and if working outdoors then drink plenty of water.

05/03/2022

There will be no siren test today. We will resume next month.

4:45 pm Update:

Thunderstorms will increase in areas from Peoria to Springfield east the remainder of the afternoon, though it may take until early evening for significant activity in eastern Illinois. The Peoria airport reported a wind gust recently of 51 mph, and the storms in this area have an increasing threat of hail and damaging winds.

The severe weather threat has ended in areas from Galesburg to Jacksonville west.

*** THIS POST IS OUTDATED ***

3:30 pm Update:

The greatest thunderstorm activity through 5 pm will be near I-55 northeast of Bloomington, while storms in eastern Illinois try and organize. While the tornado threat has diminished some west of I-55, strong to severe storms are still possible for a few more hours.

**Severe Weather Upgrade Wednesday**

Much of Illinois is now in the level 3/5 risk for severe weather. Have a plan and begin preparing for potential thunderstorms that could carry all modes of severe weather.

Future upgrades can’t be ruled out so monitor for updates.

04/11/2022

The latest outlook from the Storm Prediction Center for Wednesday has placed most of central and southeast Illinois in an enhanced risk of severe weather (level 3 of 5), with a slightly lower threat west of the Illinois River. A severe weather outbreak is likely over the central U.S. that day. Areas south of a Carlinville to Mattoon line have the best chances of seeing more significant severe weather, such as wind gusts 70+ mph or very large hail. The threat of tornadoes is also present. Continue to review severe weather safety plans, considering whether you would be at home, school or work.

Snowfall from the upcoming weather system generally will average 1 to 2 inches across the area, with the best chances of over 2 inches in west central Illinois. A rain/snow mix in eastern Illinois on Friday makes amounts more uncertain in that area. By Friday afternoon, most of the lingering precipitation will be east of I-55.

Winter storm Saturday

12/05/2021

There will be no siren test today. We will conduct a silent test at a later date to make sure everything works. Next test will be on December 7.

Storm timing based on 18z/1pm HRRR model, for a rough estimate on timing or storms.

10/23/2021

330 pm Update: Severe wind threat and tornado threat were pulled out of our far northern counties, north of Peoria. However, significant damaging wind threat area (dashed line area) was adjusted northward toward southern Morgan and Sangamon counties (Jacksonville and Springfield). [previous text] : All severe hazards are possible across central and southeast Illinois Sunday afternoon through the evening with the risk of hail starting in the afternoon and continuing into the evening. The wind and tornado risk will be mainly in the evening.

09/25/2021

4:20 am Update:

Areas of fog are occurring over west central Illinois early this morning. Watch for rapid changes in visibility if traveling, especially in rural areas. Improvement is expected after 8 am.

09/14/2021

Showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop this afternoon as a cold front moves through central Illinois. By evening, the better chances of storms will shift more into southeast Illinois. Once this system goes by, dry weather will prevail the remainder of the week.

09/14/2021

We continue to watch for the arrival of a cold front this afternoon, with strong to severe storms expected to develop ahead of it around mid afternoon. The highest threat (level 2 of 5) will be in east central Illinois northeast across Indiana, but much of the remainder of central and southeast Illinois has potential for a few strong storms as well. At this time, it appears areas from near Peoria northwest should see the front pass before the storms develop. If you have outdoor activities planned this afternoon or evening, keep an eye on the sky and take shelter if these storms approach your area.

08/09/2021

Dew point temperatures will be in the 70s the next few days, and as the air temperature climbs closer to 90 degrees, heat index values will be breaking the 100 degree mark early next week. Breaks in the heat will occur at times as showers and thunderstorms develop over the region.
