We have two rounds of storms that will work through the area over the next few hours.
The first round is coming in from the southwest and has a history of producing some peas size hail at times. Moderate to heavy rain, half inch hail, and lightning is associated with this batch. Should be entering the Winnebago area now and the Roscoe-Rockton area by around 4:35 pm. It will skirt just to the west of downtown Rockford.
The second round should be in the Rockford area by around 6 pm. This next round is currently severe warned, though I expect it to weaken some by the time it reaches the area. Heavy rain and hail is possible from these as well.
We are currently seeking volunteers. If you are interested, please visit CLICK HERE
