Late Monday, Early Tuesday Storm Potential

The "chance of storms" forecast is starting to sound like a broken record, but the overall flow pattern influencing our weather hasn't changed much.  This stationary front hanging north of us is allowing storms to fire north and west of us then propagate south to our WDRB counties. 


The Storm Prediction Center has included most of our area in a Marginal Risk for severe weather Monday.  The storms we see tonight could contain gusty winds (below or near severe level), small hail, and heavy rain leading to localized flash flooding. 


We are also in a Marginal Risk Tuesday for roughly the same areas and the same threats.  The stronger storms Tuesday will likely move in during the morning with pop-ups expected by afternoon. 


We will continue to see isolated showers and thunderstorms tonight, but the "line" that came through during the early afternoon really hurts our chances for strong storm development. 


More storms are possible by the morning drive Tuesday, so check in with WDRB in the Morning to see where those are setting up as you start your day.


Those storms will take a few hours to move through our WDRB counties, so keep an eye on radar through the morning.  These will likely stay sub-severe. 


The Weather Prediction Center has highlighted our area as being at a Slight Risk for flash flooding tonight and early Tuesday.  As these storms continue to dump heavy rain in the same areas that have already seen a lot of rain, flash flooding will become more of a hazard. 


Marc and Rick will be with you tonight tracking the earlier isolated storms, and I will be with you Tuesday morning to track the potentially stronger storms coming in for your morning drive.
