Light showers Monday morning, strong storms late tonight

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

WSIL -- Wet Monday morning with light showers continue to track east across the area. These are likely to wrap up by mid-morning, but more storms are expected late tonight.

Temperatures in the lower 60s this morning will eventually warm up to the upper 70s later this afternoon.

Once the rain ends this morning, most will remain dry the rest of the day.

Warm, humid air will build in this afternoon and evening from the south. The atmosphere appears to be "capped", meaning there's a warm layer in the atmosphere that suppresses storm development.

If any storms can bust through this "cap", then they could be strong or even severe, but that appears unlikely right now.

Our main threat for severe storms will arrive late tonight as a complex of storms moves from out of northern Arkansas and southern Missouri and tracks northeast into our region.

Timing for these storms will be anywhere from around 12AM to 7AM Tuesday morning.

The main threat will be wind damage and large hail, but a brief tornado or two can't be ruled out. In addition to severe weather, flash flooding is possible wherever the strongest storms track.

Overnight storms can often times be more dangerous as many people are sleeping, so be sure to have multiple ways to receive warnings!
