THREATS: The primary concern with storms will be damaging wind gusts. However, some storms could also have small hail. The tornado threat is very low, we can’t completely rule it out.

TIMING: Scattered showers and storms will arrive along the cold front after 1 am Monday and continue through early afternoon. It will be warm ahead of the front, which will help fuel thunderstorms. The risk for severe storms are lower for Monday morning but a storm or two could reach severe limits. The threats will be mainly the same as Sunday night with any stronger storms on Monday.
