Central Illinois is bracing for the possibility of severe weather today.
An outbreak of storms is likely across the Plains today, with damaging winds, hail, and a possibility of tornadoes.
Southern Illinois is at the biggest risk of dangerous storms… with the risk labeled as “slight” for the Springfield area.
But forecasters warn that even a slight risk is still a risk, and advise residents to be prepared and pay attention to forecasts and weather bulletins.
A Flood Watch remains in effect through Friday morning as well.
