This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of north central
Illinois...northwest Illinois...west central Illinois...east
central Iowa...northeast Iowa...southeast Iowa and northeast
Missouri.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Hot and humid weather today will give way to a chance for severe
storms and heavy rains later this afternoon and this evening. An
area of strong to severe storms is expected to develop in central
Iowa toward late morning, with storms expected to spread across
eastern Iowa during the afternoon hours. This area of storms will
move east across the rest of Illinois and northeast Missouri
through the evening hours.

The primary threat with thunderstorms will be damaging winds to 70
mph. Due to the very moist air and some potential for areas to
see multiple thunderstorms, torrential rainfall could cause
isolated areas of flash flooding through this evening.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY

Very warm and humid conditions will be seen through Saturday with
afternoon heat index readings in the 90s.

Hot and humid conditions are expected Tuesday through Wednesday.
Afternoon heat index readings well into the 90s are possible.

Thunderstorms will be possible each day through Sunday and then
again Tuesday through Wednesday. At this time it is too early to
determine any severe risk.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is likely this afternoon and evening.

...Hot and Humid Conditions and Strong to Severe Storms This
Afternoon...

The combination of temperatures in the upper 80s to near 90 and
dewpoints in the mid to upper 70s will lead to heat indices near
to above 100 degrees through the late afternoon. The hot
conditions could make outdoor activities strenuous, especially for
children, the elderly, and pets.

In addition to the heat and humidity, an approaching cold front
will bring increased chances of showers and storms to the area
this afternoon and evening. Some storms may become severe, and
will be capable of producing damaging wind gusts and torrential
rainfall. There is a low risk of large hail and an isolated
tornado.

If you have to spend time outside this afternoon, be sure to
drink plenty of water, wear lightweight and loose-fitting
clothing, and take breaks in the shade. In addition, remain
weather aware, and have multiple ways to receive warning
information. A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect for all of
eastern Iowa and much of northwest Illinois through 7 PM.
