Generic Power Outage.jpg

Despite the severe weather that threatened the area on Thursday afternoon and some storms overnight, power outages were relatively minor in the WSPY listening area and nearly no outages remain now.

As of 11:30 a.m., the Commonwealth Edison outage map only showed a handful of customers remained without power near the Waterman area and outages have been cleared near Earlville and Mendota.

Kendall, Kane and DeKalb Counties were under a tornado warning for a little over an hour on Thursday afternoon but severe weather mostly dissipated. WSPY has not learned of any injuries or severe damage.

Meanwhile, Meteorologist Mike Spiel is reporting that those storms overnight are mostly out of the area.

1.51 inches of rain was reported at the Sugar Grove Airport and most places in our listening area saw between one 1 to 2.5 inches of rain between Thursday and Friday morning. Rainfall totals show a reading in DeKalb as high as 3.70 inches.

Friday, Friday night and Saturday should be a break from the precipitation with some showers and storms returning late Saturday night. Sunday could have some more showers and storms early in the day. Otherwise, precipitation moves out of the forecast Sunday and into the start of the next work week.
