The main threat for Severe Thunderstorms will arrive this afternoon as daytime heating, combined with maximum forcing come together. Storm Prediction Center Mesoscale Analysis reveals approximately 100 j/kg of MUCAPE along with Effective Bulk Shear near 30 kts associated with an intensifying line of thundershowers across northern Illinois. As the weakening upper-level low moves northeastward, expect this line to progress east and east-northeast with the possibility of producing damaging winds and an isolated tornado. As we head into this afternoon, expect isolated supercells to fire across northern Indiana and lower Michigan. The threat will end later on tonight as main forcing moves away.
