Tracking the strong storms potential

Good Monday, everyone. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms will drop into the region from the northwest. A few of these storms could be on the strong side through early Tuesday. Bottom line: It’s more of the same.

High winds and some hail will be the primary severe weather threat from the storms Monday. We will also have to be watchful for some of the storms to produce torrential rain and a lot of lightning. The heavy rain can cause some local high-water problems. I’ll have your tracking tools in a bit.

Scattered storms carry us into the middle of the week as hotter times try to build in. The steam is really on later in the week, but thunderstorm clusters might become a problem by the weekend. We often see some active weather on the leading edge of the heat, and the models are hinting at that this weekend:

That stormy setup tries to hang tough into early next week:

I know every update I send out sounds like a broken record, but our weather pattern is pretty much playing the same tune over and over. This is the fourth straight summer that we have dealt with much stormier weather than usual.

Here are your tracking tools for the day:
