Severe Weather Possible Monday Morning

Did you hear some thunder this morning? We've had some passing showers (nothing serious), including an occasional rumble of thunder. We expect to see a break in showers today with warmer, windy conditions. Temperatures will top out near 70° this afternoon.

The showers and storms will crank up again overnight and I'm NOT expecting anything severe until closer to dawn. A SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT is in effect for tonight and Monday. With the warmer air in place and a cold front pushing through, it sets up another classic battle of air masses. The result of that can be very strong to severe weather including damaging winds, large hail, and ISOLATED (meaning few) tornadoes. As the statement says, 'now is a good time to review your severe weather safety rules. Plan where you will go if severe weather or a tornado approaches your location.'
