Weather Hazards

Thunderstorms will continue today, with the greatest chance for severe weather occurring this afternoon as vertical wind shear increases with the advance of an upper-level storm system. Damaging winds are again the main threat, but some hail is possible, and a brief, isolated tornado can not be ruled out.

River flooding will also become a concern for flood-prone rivers, in response to extended periods of moderate to heavy rain.
