Update: Severe Weather Potential for Later Today

We were greeted this morning to a round of light to sometimes-moderate showers thanks to a warm front that is lingering off to our west.  The potential for more showers and thunderstorms will increase as we head into the late afternoon and evening hours (4pm-9pm). The track of the low-pressure system will slide just to the south near I-80, which means most of the storm development will be just along and behind the warm front.  We will have to watch our atmospheric conditions throughout the day, because the more sunshine we get this afternoon, the more unstable our atmosphere becomes.  If any of the storms this afternoon/evening become severe, the main threat will be large hail and damaging winds.  This will not be a widespread event; however, you should still keep in mind that the potential is there.  We will continue to monitor the weather throughout the day and keep you updated with the latest information once it becomes available.
