[MAY 17, 2006]  A strong upper-level disturbance and associated cold front will move across Illinois late Wednesday afternoon and evening. Scattered thunderstorms are expected to develop along and ahead of the front. Due to cold temperatures at middle levels of the atmosphere, hail is likely with the stronger storms. Some of the hail may be larger than nickels. In addition, there will be a threat of winds in excess of 60 mph near the stronger storms late in the afternoon.

Although a few storms may develop ahead of the main front, the best chances will occur with the boundary as it moves through Peoria and Bloomington late in the afternoon and in Springfield, Decatur and Champaign during the early evening.

Spotter information statement:

Spotter activation may be needed from 3 to 8 p.m.
