It's the first week of July and Mother Nature is celebrating with a week full of shower and storm chances. Not the news we all want to hear as we kick off the work week under a Flash Flood Watch until noon. Heavy rain threats loom as a large system heads in from the west. Behind this system, even more rain lingers. Our atmosphere is prime for heavy downpours thanks to the increased heat and humidity over the weekend. That being said, we could see a few hours of drier air after noon before more showers and storms begin to pop up across the region. As of now, the time frame for more powerful storms looks to fall from 5pm to 12am. We're sitting under another slight risk for severe weather with the biggest threats being that of heavy downpours and flash flooding, damaging wind gusts, and a slight chance for rotation and tornado development.
Shower and thunderstorm chances remain in the forecast for the rest of the work week. We'll need to carefully monitor the 4th of July (Thursday) as many of you more than likely have plans to be out and about to enjoy the festivities. As of now, we're facing partly sunny skies and scattered storm chances through the day.
