[September 04, 2012]  The National Weather Service in Lincoln released an outlook at 5:30 a.m. Tuesday for portions of central Illinois. This weather outlook is for the counties of Cass, Christian, DeWitt, Fulton, Knox, Logan, Macon, Marshall, Mason, McLean, Menard, Morgan, Peoria, Sangamon, Schuyler, Scott, Stark, Tazewell and Woodford.

Tuesday and Tuesday night

A weak weather disturbance moving across the Midwest today will bring a chance for thunderstorms to parts of the area. No severe weather is expected. There will be another threat for scattered thunderstorms later tonight, mainly west of Interstate 55. Again, the threat for any organized severe weather is low.

Wednesday through Monday

A strong cold front is forecast to track across parts of west-central and central Illinois late Wednesday, bringing a better chance for more widespread showers and thunderstorms. A few of the storms Wednesday afternoon and early evening may become severe. The primary threat would be from locally damaging wind gusts and large hail.

Another weather system is slated to affect the area later in the week, bringing a chance for showers and thunderstorms Thursday night through Saturday.
