The Severe Thunderstorm Warning for portions of Winnebago and Ogle Counties has expired

Update 8PM CDT…

The storms which prompted the warning
have weakened below severe limits, and
no longer pose an immediate threat to 
life or property. Therefore the warning
will be allowed to expire.  A report of a 3-foot diameter tree uprooted by damaging winds
was reported 3 miles east-southeast of Durand at 7:45PM CDT. As the storms move northeast
heavy rain and cloud to ground lightning is still possible with these thunderstorms.
