Severe Weather Outlook Map for Monday Late PM/Night

Backing up for a moment – here’s the Severe Weather Outlook Map for this late afternoon/night (Mon.). SPC has added a Marginal Risk Area across N. Illinois, N. Indiana and NW Ohio. It comes up into far SW Michigan, south of a line from Benton Harbor to Coldwater. SPC says:

"...the environment may become at least marginally conducive to organized convection capable of producing severe hail and locally strong surface gusts."

It’s just a Marginal Risk area and if any severe weather occurs, the best chance would be along and south of I-80, closer to the warm front.
