Lincoln, IL – Residents of Central Illinois are on alert as the National Weather Service projects relentless winds exceeding 30 mph, coupled with a series of thunderstorms, to sweep across the area through Monday. 

The advisory emphasizes an unyielding period of severe weather conditions beginning tonight and spanning into the early week, with the highest precipitation probabilities slated for Saturday afternoon and late Sunday into Monday. The strengthening south winds pose risks of blowing debris and tricky navigation for vehicles, particularly those with high profiles. Thunderstorms, potentially severe, threaten with hail, gusty winds, and tornado chances, specifically targeting western Illinois.

The weather service recommends residents to prepare for the onslaught of inclement weather. With the mercury expected to hit the 80-degree mark over the weekend, the volatile mix of warm temperatures and stormy conditions demands heightened awareness, indoor sheltering when storms hit, and reliable access to weather warnings to mitigate the risks of large hail, flash floods, and wind damage.
