There is a chance of thunderstorms late this afternoon and tonight,

hail and damaging winds being the primary threats.

Afternoon heat index readings are expected to top out in the
lower to middle 90s across portions of east central and
southeast Iowa, northeast Missouri, and northwest and west
central Illinois.


A few thunderstorms with a lightning threat may linger into mid
Thursday morning before they diminish.

Unseasonably warm temperatures will combine with increasing
humidity to produce heat index readings in the low to mid 90s
Thursday afternoon through Friday, and in the lower 90s for
Saturday afternoon.

Thunderstorm chances return to the Outlook Area from late Monday
into Tuesday. It is too early to determine if there will be any
severe weather threat early next week.
