Temperatures are in the 80s, and dew points are high. These high dew point temperatures are feeding moisture into the atmosphere and allowing for pop up showers and thunderstorms. Showers and thunderstorms are bubbling up in areas already today. VIPIR radar is showing showers and thunderstorms that have started shortly after 1 p.m just south of Bloomington. Shortly after 2 p.m., these storms persist and are moving to the east. There is some heavy rain and lightning associated with these storms.
