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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Thunderstorms are expected to develop across southern Illinois and
parts of southeast Missouri late this afternoon or evening, then
possibly across the remainder of our region tonight. The highest
risk of severe storms is north and west of a Cape Girardeau
Missouri to Evansville Indiana line. A few storms may contain
large hail and damaging winds. A tornado or two cannot be ruled
out. Very heavy rainfall may produce isolated flash flooding.

Prior to the arrival of thunderstorms, heat indices may top out
above 100 degrees this afternoon across southeast Missouri,
southwest Illinois, and extreme western Kentucky.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Expect daily thunderstorm chances, focused primarily during the
heat of the afternoon. A few of the storms on Thursday could
briefly pulse up to severe levels, with strong winds and hail.
Otherwise, heavy rain and lightning will be the primary storm
hazards.

The heat index will top out in the 100 to 105 degree range each
afternoon Thursday through Monday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Skywarn spotter activation may be requested this evening.
