Share post:

Lincoln, IL – A significant severe weather event is forecasted to impact the I-57 corridor and surrounding areas in Central Illinois this Wednesday, with meteorologists warning of quarter-sized hail, tornadoes, and damaging wind gusts over 60 mph. This system marks a peak in a series of turbulent weather patterns affecting the region throughout the week.

In anticipation of Wednesday’s severe conditions, residents are urged to secure loose items outdoors, review emergency plans, and ensure multiple reliable methods for receiving weather alerts. The broader week involves fluctuating weather conditions, starting with a weakening line of thunderstorms late Monday into early Tuesday, which could still produce isolated damaging wind gusts. Tuesday afternoon will see a resurgence of thunderstorms, particularly east of I-57, with an increased risk of severe weather.

Temperatures are expected to remain above average in the lead-up to the storms but will cool down as the week progresses into Thursday and Friday. Community members should stay alert to changes in the weather, follow updates from trusted sources, and prepare for a swift response to severe weather warnings.
