There's a marginal risk for severe storms this afternoon and early evening. The area shaded in green has been expanded to include all of the Fox 6 viewing area. A marginal risk means an area of severe storms possible of either limited organization and longevity, or very low coverage and marginal intensity.
Future radar shows scattered to numerous showers and storms moving in from west to east during the afternoon and evening hours. This is great news for our lawn and garden but not so much for outdoor activities.
Here's what you can expect with the strongest of the storms today:

We are not expecting the kind of storms that will be capable of producing tornadoes. They will be slow movers and produce lots of lightning and heavy rainfall. A few storms may grow to strong or severe levels. If that happens, gusty winds and hail will be possible.
Be weather aware,
