A strong cold front (the same front that brought the severe weather to the Upper Midwest Monday) will bring the risk of severe storms from the Middle Mississippi Valley to the Ohio Valley today. Damaging winds will be the main weather risk, but frequent lightning and small hail will also be possible. Here is the very latest.
Isolated severe storms in the forecast today from Western Illinois to Western New York State.
Damaging winds will be the main weather risk. Wind gusts over 58 mph will be possible from Rochester, New York to St. Louis, Missouri. Definitely bring indoors any loose outdoor items that could potential be damaged or blown away.
The timing for today’s severe storms will be during the peak heating hours this afternoon. This will likely bring hazardous travel conditions for the evening commute home from work.
