We had several severe thunderstorms move through the Stateline late Tuesday morning into the early to middle of the afternoon. These storms were elevated and producing lots of hail and winds. The potential is still there to see storms move in from the southwest. There are a few Severe Thunderstorm Warnings near Quincy and those will continue to track northeastward.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch was issued for Green and Rock counties in southern Wisconsin until 1am. Jo Daviess and Stephenson counties have been also included in this which replaces the previous Tornado Watch for those counties. Carroll and Whiteside counties remain under a Tornado Watch until 10pm. The storms that pass-through areas included in the Severe Thunderstorm Watch could stay more elevated especially in southern Wisconsin, which hail and winds, similar to what we saw earlier, would be the main threats. However, if the storms manage to take an easterly turn, which is what we are seeing near McDonough Illinois, a few isolated tornadoes are possible.

Limiting factors still include cloud cover, the cap, and the warm front placement as we head for the next few hours. Right now, we are watching about 8pm to 12am for the potential second round with the warm front and then about 4-8am early Wednesday morning along the cold front for the third/overnight round of storms.

The warm front did stall as a stationary front but that is now moving northward, still south of the Stateline but really boosting temperatures south of here. Areas like Springfield and St Louis are in the lower to mid 80s, while we are still in the 50s across the Stateline. Temperatures will climb late tonight into early tomorrow morning where we will be in the mid to upper 60s. Then around lunchtime or a little earlier temperature will fall fast behind the cold front. By the afternoon, we will be in the 50s.
