A cluster of showers/storms moved eastward during the morning and mid day on Tuesday. Most of it diminished as it reached into east central Illinois and west central Indiana. The only exception was a small cell which developed in southern Champaign County and moved to the northeast. That cell brought locally heavy rainfall and frequent lightning to a narrow area from Homer to Fithian, Oakwood, Danville, Covington to Lafayette, Indiana. Rainfall totals of around an inch as has been estimated by ESP:Live Doppler.
Highs were once again in the low 80s with dew points around 70-degrees.
--STORM TEAM 15 FORECAST--
The chance of thunderstorms will continue on and off through the next few days, as a frontal boundary will be in place over mid Illinois and Indiana at times. Our best chance of showers will be into Thursday and once again a slight chance late Friday.
Our lack of 90 degree days may come to an end this week as a summer time pattern sets up across the area. Significant heat and humidity spread into the Midwest as the week goes on. Wednesday through Sunday temperatures rise into the upper 80's then into the lower 90's with heat indices in the upper 90's, approaching 100.
