Slight Chance For Strong/Severe Weather

Here we go again talking about a chance for severe weather to impact the Sauk Valley region on this day, June 29th 2017. Luckily though we’ll be on the lower end of the spectrum in terms of severe weather. At 8:00AM the SPC kept the area under a slight risk for a possible isolated to scattered event across part of Illinois.

Threats will be limited to mainly wind gusts in any strong or severe storm along with possible small hail. However, coverage will be limited in our area by the way current models are trending. Overall, today does not look as potent as yesterday did which mainly affected Iowa.


Threats: Damaging Winds, small hail

Timing: After 5PM

Confidence for severe weather: Low

Overall: This system has pushed southward a bit, and the severity of today has lessened over night. A likely scenario may be that for an isolated shower/thunderstorm with gusty winds if one should develop. However, we’ll continue to monitor any changes in the forecast.
