Still looks like we are dodging the worst of the weather
As of 6:45 p.m. I am picking up an isolated thundershower in southern Carroll and northern Clinton County, but it does not look like it is intensifying. The forecast still holds for isolated thunderstorms this evening with the main line of scattered thunderstorms moving through after 9 p.m. The main threats will be lightning and wind gusts to 40 mph.
The warm front in Wisconsin and Michigan will be the big severe weather producer in the Midwest this evening while the cold front moving our way will just not have much steam left by time it arrives. We zapped the atmosphere of most of its energy with our earlier round of storms and even though we doe have some sunshine out there our chances of any severe storms will remain on the low side.
Just remember your lightning safety rules tonight and get inside when you hear thunder. Remember most people are struck by lightning when it is not raining outside. Be safe!
