The National Weather Service out of Lincoln has issued a hazardous weather outlook for most of Central Illinois, late Wednesday evening and early Thursday morning. Thunderstorms will develop across northern Missouri shifting eastward from the Illinois River Valley late this evening. The storms will reach the I-55 Interstate around midnight. Some storms could produce damaging winds and large hail. Christian County Emergency Management Director Mike Crews says that the biggest risk for Christian County and the surrounding counties are a little after midnight and if you don’t have a weather radio you should invest in one.
There will be additional chances for thunderstorms Friday through Tuesday with some storms producing heavy rainfall.
