554 AM CDT Wed Apr 26 2017

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of east central
Illinois and southeast Illinois.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT...

Showers and storms will move across west central Illinois today
and tonight as a cold front moves through the area. Some of these
storms could be strong to severe, with damaging winds and hail
the primary threat. Locally heavy rainfall is also possible as
amounts of .5 to 1 inch are possible, with the heaviest rainfall
occurring Wednesday evening.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY...

More showers and storms will be possible Friday through Sunday
night as a series of weather systems move through the area.
Rainfall amounts over this 3 day period could range from 3.5 to
4.5 inches, with the highest amounts falling Saturday night. The heavy
rain falling on saturated soil from earlier storms will produce
rapid runoff and a potential for localized flooding, as well as,
river flooding across the region.

In addition, there is a slight risk that some of the storms Friday
through Friday night could become severe with damaging winds and
large hail the main threat.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of southern
Illinois, southwest Indiana, western Kentucky, and southeast
Missouri.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

The development of isolated thunderstorms cannot be ruled out
over southeast Missouri and southwest Illinois through early this
afternoon. Severe weather is not expected with this activity.

Strong to potentially severe thunderstorms are expected to form
along and ahead of a cold front over southeast Missouri by mid to
late afternoon. Initially, storms will be capable of producing
large hail, damaging winds, and an isolated tornado.

A line of thunderstorms should progress into southern Illinois
and far western Kentucky by early evening. Damaging winds will be
the primary concern.

The severe threat will diminish quickly as the storms move east
towards the Wabash River and the Land Between the Lakes by late
evening. Lightning and locally heavy rain will also accompany
thunderstorm activity.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Multiple rounds of thunderstorms are expected Friday through
Sunday. Heavy rainfall is expected over portions of the region.
Please refer to the Hydrologic Outlook for details.

In addition, strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible through
the period. At this time, the best chance of severe storms appears
to be with a warm frontal passage Friday night, in addition to the
cold frontal passage Sunday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will likely be needed by mid to late afternoon
in southeast Missouri, and throughout southern Illinois and the
Purchase Area of western Kentucky by early evening.

Spotters are also encouraged to monitor the latest forecasts for
possible activation over the upcoming weekend.
