Hazardous Weather Outlook For WHITE County,IL
420 AM CDT Mon Jun 18 2018 DAY ONE TODAY AND TONIGHT Heat warnings and advisories are in effect for the outlook area through this afternoon. A combination of high heat and humidity will produced dangerous afternoon heat index values of 100 to 105 degrees. Scattered thunderstorms will develop by late afternoon north of Highway 30, then increase in coverage tonight, especially north of Interstate 80. Areas north of Highway 30 are favored for potential heavy rain and flash flooding. There is a low risk of severe storms north of Highway 34, with pockets of damaging wind the main threat. Area rivers are experiencing flooding. Please see the latest Flood Statements and Flood Warnings for details. DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY Thunderstorms are expected to redevelop on Tuesday and move across much of the area through Tuesday evening. Some of these storms may become strong to severe with damaging wind the primary concern. The Storm Prediction Center has placed most areas along and south of the Highway 20 corridor in a marginal risk for severe weather on Tuesday. Heavy rainfall will also be a threat Tuesday, possibly producing localized flash flooding and aggravating ongoing river flooding. Although not quite reaching Heat advisory criteria, areas along and south of the highway 34 corridor in southeast Iowa, northeast Missouri, and west central Illinois may have heat index readings in the mid to upper 90s on Tuesday before storms hit the area and cool things down later in the afternoon. There will be periodic chances for thunderstorms from Wednesday through Saturday. The predictability of severe weather for those mid to late week days remains low at this time. But additional rounds of moderate to heavy rainfall may lead to flooding problems. Flooding is expected to continue on some area tributary rivers. Rounds of heavy rainfall may also cause additional river sites to rise later this week. Please see the latest Flood Statements and Flood Warnings for details. SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT Spotter activation may be needed late this afternoon and tonight, especially north of Interstate 80.
