We’re tracking two batches of showers and thunderstorms.  One will move through today along a warm front the other along a cold front later tonight and early Friday morning. We’re under an elevated risk of severe weather today and early tomorrow morning.

The main threat will be strong winds, some hail and very heavy rainfall.

There is a flood watch in effect for most of the area until Friday morning.  We have the potential to see 2-4 inches of rain from both of these batches of rain.

This morning we’re seeing some scattered showers ahead of the main line of storms that’s in western Illinois as of 6am.  The rain we’re seeing today is along a warm front.  The heavy batch of showers and thunderstorms will move through between 11am and 2pm.  So grab the rain gear if you’re heading south to see the Reds.

It appears we may get a break shortly after the evening rush hour.  Thunderstorms will become scattered around 6pm which means we may have a dry first pitch for the Dayton Dragons home opener!  Be prepared for the possibility of rain though just in case one of those scattered showers sticks around.

Later tonight and tomorrow morning we will be tracking the cold front that will move through the area.  This will bring us round 2 of showers and thunderstorms.

Some of these storms may be strong and produce gusty winds and heavy rainfall.  We may see some very heavy rain at times.  Total amounts will approach 2 to 4 inches.

Once the front moves through tomorrow morning we will see conditions improve Friday afternoon and for the weekend. Fri 5pm

High pressure builds into the area for the weekend.  This will bring cooler temperatures for Saturday but a lot of sunshine for the entire weekend.
