Strong Storms Possible Sunday

Most of our area will remain dry today, however, there is a risk of strong to severe storms for those people who do see some precipitation. We have a combination of high humidity and hot temperatures that will contribute to this risk.

For Sunday...temps will hit 80° before 10 am and we'll top out between 85° and 88° this afternoon with about a 30% chance of thunderstorms. Some storms could reach severe limits with dangerous lightning, large hail, damaging winds, and even a remote chance of a tornado spinning up in a severe storm. This is, however, a minimal chance.

National Safe Boating Week started on Saturday and runs through May 27th. 

Rest of our forecast for the upcoming week calls for much of the same as Sunday. Hot weather, chances of thunderstorms, and elevated humidity levels. Feels much like summer versus last week's Seattle-like weather in the 50's with clouds!
