Issued at 252 PM EDT Tue Jun 25 2024

The initial round of storms has moved south along the outflow boundary where convection was becoming more scattered. Large CAPE values were indicated by SPC mesoanalysis from around 4000 to 5000 J/Kg south of the boundary from east central IL to west central IN. Massive hail cores were indicated in this area with 70 dBz to over 30K feet per radar.

West of the forecast area over nrn IL and far southern WI, an EML was helping to produce extremely large CAPEs in a long band of >6000 J/Kg and a core over 6500 J/kg per SPC. Capping at the base of the EML should hold storms in check until late this afternoon and this evening per HRRR. Have reduced storm coverage over the forecast area into early this evening given the above reasoning. It still looks like a more marginal storm threat tonight, although locally heavy rainfall is possible along with possible subsequent flooding of mainly urban area.

Otherwise, a break in the stormy weather is expected until late Friday when a pair of upper level systems are forecast to reach the area per GFS. BUFKIT soundings given a strong signal for the potential for heavy rain with prec. water values over 2.0 inches.

Issued at 606 AM EDT Tue Jun 25 2024

A line of thunderstorms is racing southeast along the eastern shore of Lake Michigan. Wind gusts of 60 mph have been recorded.
A gradual weakening trend is anticipated but this has not been observed quiet yet. Upstream observations will be monitored closely and amendments will be made to KSBN as needed.

This complex has a greater likelihood of weakening by the time it reaches KFWA, but this will need to be monitored closely as well.

Additional storms are possible this evening, resulting in PROB30s for now. Morning storms could either squash or enhance the evening risk.

IN...Beach Hazards Statement until 7 PM CDT this evening for INZ103.
MI...Beach Hazards Statement until 8 PM EDT this evening for MIZ177- 277.
