Rockford Scanner™: Rain this AM, Possible Severe Storms This PM




A round of non-severe showers and a couple storms will move north through the region this morning with rain-free conditions expected late this morning and into the early-afternoon for much of the region. Temperatures today will range from the 50s near the Wisconsin/Illinois state line to near 80 south of a Pontiac to Rensselaer line as a warm front lifts northward.

By late this afternoon and into the evening, the threat for a few strong to severe storms will increase with the main threat west of a Pontiac to Rockford line. Strong wind gusts will be the main threat, although a tornado or two can’t be ruled out this afternoon. The severe threat will gradually diminish this evening, but gusty winds will be possible into the Chicago area tonight.

Locally heavy rainfall may also lead to renewed river rises and isolated instances of flooding
