Severe Thunderstorm Watch issued for most of region

Posted: Updated:

(WSIL) -- A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for most of the region until 9:00 p.m.

We are still tracking the chance for strong to severe storms this afternoon.

The timing has changed a bit since yesterday, in that the time frame has moved from an evening focus to an afternoon focused event.

Main concerns with this event will be strong winds and hail. The tornado risk seems diminished, but a brief tornado cannot be ruled out.
