6:45 PM Weather Update

Storms are moving into the area.

Storms continue to push into our NW counties currently. They are multi-cellular with a couple displaying supercell characteristics.

Threat of some large hail & wind at first will translate to more of just the threat of some severe gusts as they gell together to form a line & sweep through now to around 10 p.m. At that point, as they get into our southeastern areas, the line may tend to gust out & weaken.

Surprisingly, Storm Prediction Center is saying low likelihood of watch issuance at this point. Regardless, watch for a few storms reaching severe criteria (+1" hail, gust <58 mph) in the area this evening.  We are only on the far southern edge of the stronger flow aloft, but CAPE (storm energy) is high at +3000 J/kg.  SLIGHT RISK of severe continues for much of the area this evening (except far south & southeast), which means scattered severe weather possible.

More showers/storms are possible tomorrow with a MARGINAL RISK of severe weather (isolated severe storms possible).
