June 11 Rainfall

Rainfall across central and southeast Illinois on Monday, June 11th was highly variable. A few locations picked up beneficial rain, while other areas remained totally dry. A complex of thunderstorms that developed over the Plains during the overnight hours of June 10th pushed into west-central Illinois in a dissipating stage during the early morning of the 11th. Rainfall amounts with this feature were quite light, with less than one quarter of an inch occurring from Jacksonville northward to Peoria. Further south closer to a more unstable airmass across Missouri, the thunderstorm complex was able to hold together and track through the St. Louis area into south-central Illinois. As the atmosphere destabilized across east-central and southeast Illinois after sunrise, scattered thunderstorms developed along the outflow boundary produced by the dying convection in the Illinois River Valley earlier in the day. The storms generally fired along and east of a Monticello to Taylorville line, then tracked eastward before fizzling out near the Indiana border. Locally heavy rainfall amounts of three quarters to one inch were reported with this line, with our SWOP observer in Champaign picking up the most at 0.94. Unfortunately for those who received beneficial rainfall on Monday, we will not be following that up with additional rain anytime soon. Dry weather is expected until next Monday at the earliest.
