THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTH CENTRAL ILLINOIS...
NORTHEAST ILLINOIS AND NORTHWEST INDIANA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

  WEATHER HAZARDS EXPECTED:

  SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS...A FEW MAY PRODUCE:
  HAIL TO THE SIZE OF QUARTERS.
  DAMAGING WIND GUSTS IN EXCESS OF 60 MPH.
  LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL.

  AREAS AFFECTED AND TIMING:

  WHILE SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED FOR THE ENTIRE

  MENDOTA LINE IN THE EARLY TO LATE AFTERNOON. WIDESPREAD
  THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY IS EXPECTED TO SHIFT TO MAINLY EAST OF

  DISCUSSION:

  SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM COVERAGE IS EXPECTED TO INCREASE THIS

  SOUTHEAST ACROSS THE OUTLOOK AREA INTO THE EARLY EVENING HOURS.
  A COMBINATION OF MODERATE INSTABILITY AND FAIRLY HIGH LEVELS OF

  TO SCATTERED STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS CAPABLE OF PRODUCING STRONG
  WINDS AND HAIL. THE ATMOSPHERE IS CAPPED TO INTENSE THUNDERSTORM
  DEVELOPMENT AS OF THE LATE MORNING HOURS...SO THE HIGHER THREAT
