Severe thunderstorms developed over west central Illinois this
afternoon, then tracked east across the state. The storms moved
into Indiana early this evening. Most of the storm reports were
of large hail and damaging winds. Temperatures around the area at
9 PM, ranged from 65 degrees at Danville, to 75 degrees at
Lawrenceville, Mount Carmel, and Springfield.

Friday has left a weak cold front behind. This frontal boundary
will stall out overnight near the I-70 corridor. Fog may develop
across the area overnight, especially north of I-72. This front
will be a focusing mechanism for strong to severe convection for
late Saturday night. Temperatures will return to near normal for
the weekend, with highs in the upper 70s to mid 80s.

Low temperatures tonight, will range from the lower 50s in
southern Wisconsin, to the lower 70s across southeast Missouri and
