Soggy Wednesday

Storms with heavy rain and dime to nickel sized hail have continued south across the Stateline this morning. Not one, but two lines of storms have moved through.

So far there hasn't been any severe storms, but there has still been hefty amounts of rain. So far some locations have picked up around an inch and a half of rain, with more rain still falling. Along with that, there have been wind gusts around 40mph and hail up to a half inch in some of the storms.

The storms will continue sinking to the southeast around 30 mph and will continue through about 1pm today before we see dry but cloudy skies across the area. These storms have developed where there has been higher moisture levels and higher instability.

As mentioned, no severe weather is anticipated at this time, but storms will continue with heavy rain, small hail, and gusty winds near 40mph. The stronger areas of storms will continue to sink southeast and stay mainly south and west of Rochelle.

Coverage of these storms will lessen by the afternoon and we begin to dry out. While there are storm chances tonight, I anticipate they will stay north of the Wisconsin Stateline.
