Strong to severe storms likely into the evening and overnight
Two waves of storms will progress through the region today and generate some storms. The first wave will be more of the typical summer time pop up variety. Although not organized, still formidable. There is the potential for these storms to produce gusty winds, large hail and heavy rain along with some lightning. These will plow the road for the second wave of storms that will arrive late in the afternoon and linger into the evening.
A line of storms that will push out ahead of a cold front moving our way from the west will be the organized line. Storms may produce very gusty straight line winds along with the heavy rain. Hail is also possible and may reach the 1” in diameter range or bigger. The threat of a tornado is not off the table either, although a slim chance, the chance is not zero.
Stay weather aware as we move through the day and night. The line is expected to move out of our eastern communities near midnight. Periods of wind may follow the line so there is still a chance some trees may be toppled in the wind as the root systems may be weak from all the rain. Speaking of the rain, we do have the chance for us to get minor flooding as the storms move by, so stay alert for rising waters in the region.
The rest of the week will be hot. Summer temperatures in the low 90s are expected this week so make sure you have your fans in place and your AC in order. Upper 80s Tuesday and Wednesday, then 90s through the rest of the week and into the weekend.
