Whew! It was an active day across the Valley…especially during the afternoon hours when a line of strong, and at times, severe storms rolled across the area. Numerous power outages were reported from gusty winds on the leading edge of the storms. Many of you viewers caught awesome photos of the shelf cloud as it approached!
We’re tracking another round of showers and thunderstorms to affect the Valley in the overnight hours. This should slide in around midnight from west to east.
The severe threat is low but it could get noisy while you’re trying to catch some zzz’s. 30-40mph wind gusts, small hail, frequent thunder/lightning, and heavy rain will all be possible.
That will also make for wet and potentially stormy Tuesday morning commute. You may want to add a little extra time for your drive. I think we’ll have a brief break is the widespread activity during the morning before it picks right back up around midday. Here is a breakdown of when the better chances are Tuesday.
With already saturated grounds and more heavy rain on the way, a flash flood watch is in effect for most of our area until 7pm Tuesday evening.
We’ll dry out Tuesday evening then head into a more summertime pattern with hot and humid days and an isolated afternoon thunderstorm chance.
