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

Moderate to major flooding will continue along the Mississippi
River. Please see the latest Flood Statements and Flood Warnings
for details

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY

A strong spring storm system moving through the region Saturday may
bring accumulating snow into portion of eastern Iowa and northwest
Illinois from late morning through early evening. The potential
for at least a few inches of wet snow accumulation looks to be
greatest along and north of the highway 20 corridor. There is the
chance for higher amounts if the storm system can track further
south and produce snowfall at rates of an inch or more per hour to
overcome the warm surfaces. Lighter snow amounts may occur
further south to the highway 30 corridor. Strong winds gusting up
to 40 MPH may combine with the heavy wet snow to reduce visibility
and produce minor tree damage and power outages. Travel may
become challenging in these conditions by Saturday afternoon. Stay
tuned for further updates and possible winter weather headlines
that may be issued as this storm becomes more certain.

Away from the snow, strong east to southeast winds gusting 35 to
40 MPH Saturday morning will switch to the northeast and north and
gust up to 45 MPH as the afternoon progresses. These strong winds
combined with rain may still produce travel impacts.

Cold air spilling into the area behind this system may lead to
temperatures dropping below freezing by early Sunday morning
across eastern Iowa and northwest Illinois, especially along and
north of Interstate 80.

Thunderstorms will be possible Sunday night, and again Tuesday
night into Wednesday. It is too soon to determine the potential
for severe weather. Locally heavy rain may occur with these bouts
of storms which may eventually aggravate ongoing river flooding
situations.

Moderate to major flooding will continue along the Mississippi
River. Please see the latest Flood Statements and Flood Warnings for
details.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.

415 AM CDT Fri Apr 26 2019 /515 AM EDT Fri Apr 26 2019/

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of North Central
Illinois...Northeast Illinois and Northwest Indiana.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Weather hazards expected...

  Limited Non thunderstorm wind Risk.
  Elevated Fire weather Risk.

DISCUSSION...

Gusty northwest winds to 35 mph to possibly isolated 40 mph and
dry conditions will result in an increased risk for brush fires
today.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday.

Saturday...
  Limited Non Thunderstorm Wind Risk, mainly near Lake Michigan.
  Significant Snow Risk for portions of far northern Illinois.
  Elevated Lakeshore Flood Risk
Monday through Thursday...
  Limited Thunderstorm Risk.

DISCUSSION:

A significant storm system will quickly move across the region on
Saturday and Saturday night. Portions of far northern Illinois,
especially closer to the Wisconsin state line, could receive
several inches of heavy wet snow. In addition, if heavy snow does
occur, strong northerly winds could further reduce visibility and
cause minor tree damage and power outages. Finally, the strong
winds and large waves will elevate already high lake levels, which
could result in lakeshore flooding.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

  Spotter activation will not be necessary through tonight.

This hazardous weather outlook is for central Indiana.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Outlook: Northwesterly wind gusts of 40 mph are possible at times
through the day. Some moderate river flooding will continue into
the afternoon on the Mississinewa near Ridgeville, and nuisance
flooding could continue through much of central Indiana through at
least mid morning.

Hazards: Gusty winds. Ponding of water on roads and water on river
area roads.

Timing: Gusty winds should dissipate by around sunset. Moderate
flooding should end by early afternoon if not before.

Discussion: A low pressure system to the east of the area will keep a
tight gradient across central Indiana leading to a blustery day.
Rainfall yesterday and early this morning is leading to nuisance
flooding across much of central Indiana, with moderate flooding
occurring in the Ridgeville area.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday.

Outlook: There are chances for thunderstorms from Monday through
Thursday. No severe storms are expected at this time, but lightning
is a threat from any storm that forms. Heavy rainfall that leads to
flooding could occur as well.

Discussion: A frontal system will approach and then stall near the
area, allowing a series of upper waves to interact with it bringing
rain and thunderstorm chances to the area. Should rain develop
repeatedly over the same area, more moderate flooding could develop.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not anticipated.
