A good Thursday to all. Let's take a look at a Hazardous Weather Outlook from the National Weather Service.

It states:

"After a hot and somewhat humid day today, a cold front will arrive in northern areas this afternoon and become stationary south of Interstate 80 tonight. An isolated thunderstorm is possible early today in northern Illinois, and again along this front this afternoon. The storms this afternoon and tonight will generally be found north of an Iowa City to Galesburg line.

"The Storm Prediction Center has much of the area north of Interstate 80 in a Slight Risk for severe storms this afternoon and tonight. The main threat from storms this afternoon and tonight will be hail up to quarter size, and winds to 60 mph. In addition to this, all storms tonight are likely to bring locally heavy rainfall. Since the front is becoming stationary tonight, there is a threat that storms could impact the same areas repeatedly, which could cause flash flooding."
