Severe thunderstorms with large hail, tornadoes possible in the Midwest on Sunday


A slow-moving cold front will move through the Midwest on Sunday and help bring strong to severe thunderstorms.

Severe thunderstorms are possible over much of the region that stretches from southeast Iowa and northeast Missouri through Illinois and Indiana.

However, the highest risk is centered in southeastern Iowa, including Davenport, and parts of northwestern Illinois, including the cities of Peoria and Springfield.

The FOX Forecast Center believes that all severe weather modes, including damaging wind, hail and tornadoes, will be possible, particularly in the late afternoon and evening.

Once the storms develop, they will tend to move east to the east-southeast as long as the atmospheric conditions are sufficient.


The storm system will move eastward in the evening and could bring a few showers during storms Monday along the eastern Great Lakes and northeast.

Unlike Sunday, the threat is expected to be minimal, with only isolated chances of a few strong storms, which could produce gusty winds and hail.

Rainfall amounts are expected to remain light with many areas receiving less than an inch of rain.
