Strong Storms Possible Sunday

We continue to be spoiled rotten with our brief break in the heat and humidity as temperatures remained in the 70s for the second day in a row. The heat will be back though especially by the second half of next week.

The Storm Prediction Center has the entire area under a slight risk (Level 2) for severe storms. The potential is there for all hazards... of severe during this timeframe with a bigger emphasis on damaging winds and heavy rainfall. Isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out.

Model guidance has been varying quite a bit over the last 24 hours however this is what is currently forecast to occur tomorrow.

During the morning a leftover thunderstorm complex from the northern plains will be pushing through the area near sunrise. Some gusty winds may accompany this line as moves through in a weakening phase during the early morning hours. After this we'll see a break in the precipitation during the late morning and afternoon. If we can manage to see some sunshine for a few hours during this lull in the activity the potential will be there for much stronger redevelopment during the late afternoon and evening hours across the entire area.

Timing: 3pm-10pm
Hazards:
Large Hail: Low
Damaging Winds: Moderate
Tornadoes: Low

Plenty of moisture will be available for these storms to easily produce some very heavy rainfall as well so flash flooding is likely to occur with these storms.

We'll have updates throughout the day on Sunday regarding the severe threat. Make sure and stay weather aware and have a way to receive warnings should they be issued for your area.
