A sunny start to the day will give way to increasing clouds as the next system approaches. Rain and thunderstorms are expected to develop Thursday evening from west to east.

An extended period of rain is possible through Friday into Friday evening as a warm front becomes established across south-central Illinois.

There is a slight risk of severe storms, with the focus being late Friday afternoon and evening, ahead of an advancing cold front. Large hail and damaging winds will be the primary hazards.

Heavy rain and flooding will be possible, due to an abundance of Gulf moisture for this system. Areas southeast of Interstate 70 will have the higher potential for flooding, but all areas of central Illinois have saturated ground in place already.
