Severe Weather Risk
By this afternoon a few breaks in the clouds and heating will allow the atmosphere to become moderately unstable. Combined with enough wind shear aloft we’ll likely see pockets of more organized thunderstorms develop. Some of these storms could be severe with large hail and localized damaging wind gusts. Widespread severe weather is not expected but being a spring day in April does mean some severe weather risk is likely to develop this afternoon. We’ll see the overall severe weather risk die down after sunset as we start to lose instablity. That doesn’t mean the rain will end though!
Here is what the Weather Prediction Center is forecasting for rain accumulations through 6 AM Tuesday. This does not include any rain that has fallen this morning. Widespread/significant flash flooding is not expected. Minor flooding is possible under heavier storms especially in typical problem and urban locations.
