We are forecasting for a primary risk of large hail, gusty winds, and locally heavy rainfall with isolated tornado potential, but this is a low-end risk. A Severe Thunderstorm Watch does remain in effect until 6PM tonight.

Localized heavy rainfall amounts between 2-4″ appears likely, with localized hot spots of 3-6+” possible between Tuesday-Wednesday. Some hot spots of higher amounts will be possible if or where thunderstorms stall out and train.

Rain chances still look to remain in the forecast into Friday-Saturday, although the rain coverage looks more scattered rather than numerous. Late Saturday-Sunday looks like the best days of the week!
