Few Severe Storms Possible Tuesday
Scattered afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms are expected again today in the area, as it is both very hot and humid. In addition, we continue to be in an upper-level pattern supportive of thunderstorm development as atmospheric waves (disturbances) track over the region. Although nearly the entire state is blanketed in this slight risk for severe storms today, this does not mean everyone will see rain or storms. But for those of you who do get a storm, it could be one with damaging wind gusts. Storm movement should be to the east at about 20-30 mph. Any of these showers and storms today will have local heavy downpours and potentially a lot of lightning. Stay weather aware if you're outdoors this afternoon and evening! Remember, if you can hear thunder, you are close enough to be struck. Move indoors and away from windows and electronics. Stay with CBS 6, we'll keep you ahead of the storm.
