Cloudy, 50-degree day likely in Lancaster County; thunderstorms possible midweek

Meteorologist John Dissauer's take on where the best chance for severe thunderstorms 1pm Tuesday through 1am Wednesday

All of central IN is actually IN an "Enhanced Risk" which is one step above a SLIGHT for severe storms tonight. Once it does the threat of severe weather comes to an end. While it will not be widespread, isolated damaging wind gusts and small hail will be possible. The agency also said there was a "rope tornado" reported in LaSalle County.

As the cold front moves east.on Wednesday we will see showers and storms across the area. the best chance of severe storms will be from about 11 AM to 8 PM. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 76. Sustained winds between 20 to 35 miles per hour likely and gusts topping 50 miles per hour.

Tonight. Showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 7pm.

The primary threats will be quarter size or larger hail and damaging winds. As the second system moves closer Tuesday, expect a mostly cloudy sky and a gusty south wind of 15 to 20 miles per hour. Chance of precipitation is 80%. There's an even larger Slight/Enhanced Outlook area for Wednesday that goes from LA to near New York City. Partly sunny, with a temperature falling to around 51 by 9am.

Some senators, such as ohn McCain and Lindsey Graham favor an even broader investigation. Like the Democrats when the Benghazi committee was investigating that attack.

A thunderstorm is considered to reach severe limits if it has the ability to produce winds of 58 miles per hour or greater and hail at least 1 inch in diameter, that's the size of a quarter!

On the heels of a cooler weekend, we are warming up again for early this week and that will give us another chance of some storms on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Highs on Thursday will be near 60° - dropping to 55° on Friday. Due to increasing low-level jet in response to upper jet dynamics, the 850mb winds increase to 60kts+. Winds could gust as high as 23 miles per hour.

Wednesday's high temperature is forecast at near 73 degrees, with a low of 38 degrees forecast for Wednesday night.
