Episode Narrative A frontal system over the area brought two rounds of showers and thunderstorms to the mid Mississippi Valley on June 18. The first was during the midday to early afternoon hours, quickly followed by the second round in the late afternoon and evening. While there were scattered reports of hail, heavy rain and damaging winds were reported across much of the area. As a result of the torrential rains, flash flooding was rather widespread. Rainfall totals through mid evening were widely varied; ranging from a couple tenths of an inch to well over 2 inches in some locations. A few lightning strikes also caused some damage. Afternoon highs were mainly in the 80s, with a few low 90s south of highway 34.
Event Narrative Wind gusts estimated to be 70 mph blew a tree down onto a house in Galena, IL at 155 pm June 18. The local utility company also reported several outages due to trees on power lines and trees down in the right-of-way.
