Potential for Strong and Severe Storms on Tuesday

The early part of February will be active as a strong storm system will be coming into the Regional Radio listening area on Tuesday, bringing with it the potential for strong to severe thunderstorms for central and southeastern Illinois. Chris Miller, Warning Coordination Meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Lincoln, told Regional Radio News, the storms will be fast moving and the primary threat is damaging winds.

The majority of central Illinois could possibly see strong storms, while parts of southeastern Illinois including Effingham could see severe storms with an isolated tornado possible. Miller says the storms are expected to develop near the Interstate 55 corridor in the afternoon hours and could get stronger as they move to the east. Followed by the storms, cold temperatures will move into the area.
