Our storm threat has increased in severity and expanded northward.

Update as of 11:45 a.m.

Timing: 2 p.m. - 10 p.m.

Threats/Impacts: Damaging winds, tornadoes, flash flooding and hail.

We will have two waves of storms. The first wave will bring heavy rain, gusty winds and possible hail. We will see a lull before the second wave arrives around 2 p.m. - 3 p.m. This will be stronger and faster. The forward motion will move these storms 60-70 mph.

All modes of severe weather will be in play, including damaging winds, flooding, tornadoes (some strong and long track possible), as well as hail. The key thing to know about tomorrow afternoons storms is they will be very fast moving storms so that means you must act immediately if a warning is issued.
