Chance for Severe Storms Today
Updated by KSFY Meteorologist Aaron Doudna Sunday, July 5 at 8:05 AM
There are a few showers and thunderstorms around the region this morning. They could drop some small hail and have some gusty wind with them.
After the storms move out this morning, we’ll see the sun come out and temps rise into the upper 80s to right around 90. More thunderstorms should form later this afternoon and evening. Some of these could also be severe with the main threat being hail and gusty straight-line wind. There’s also a chance for an isolated tornado or two. We’ll keep you informed on anything that develops.
Those storms will move to the east overnight. Overnight, the main severe threat with storms will be straight-line wind gusts. Highs Monday will be in the upper 70s. Highs will gradually warm back into the 80s by the end of the week.
