    Severe Storms to Rattle the Midwest Through Sunday Evening

    By By Kristina Pydynowski, senior meteorologist

    Communities in and around southern Illinois will become the target of severe weather through early Sunday night.

    The strongest thunderstorms will be capable of producing torrential downpours, hail and damaging winds.

    Downpours accompanying the thunderstorms could create hazards for motorists (reduced visibility and water ponding on roadways). Flash flooding will slow the rate at which swollen rivers are currently receding.

    Areas between St. Louis, Mo., and Indianapolis south into Memphis, Tenn. will be most at risk through Sunday evening.

    On Monday, showers and thunderstorms will occur along and ahead of the storm across most of the eastern third of the United States. Thunderstorms producing downpours this day will be most numerous across the eastern Ohio Valley and central Appalachians.

    However, AccuWeather.com meteorologists are concerned that it will only take one drenching thunderstorm crossing parts of the I-95 corridor where Andrea shattered rainfall records on Friday to renew flooding problems.
