There is nothing currently on the radar, and the cloud cover will be retreating, leaving us with lots of sun and heat. As the day heats, the rising air causes the atmosphere to become unstable, and with an upper level disturbance moving in later this afternoon, storms are possible.

TIMING

Late afternoon into the early evening. Storms should end as the sun goes down.

TYPE

These will be pop up type storms, so keep an eye on the sky if you are outside. Remember, if you can hear the thunder, you can be hit by lightning, even if there is no storm over you.

THREATS

Destructive wind gusts and hail.
