Tonight’s severe threat continues to diminish. A second round of storms is weakening as it moves eastward into a more stable environment. Scattered showers with embedded thunderstorms will be possible late tonight. There will be a brief lull closer to sunrise.

One more round of storms stands between us and some sunny and very warm summer days. A “cool” front will usher in the finale of this stormy stretch. Scattered strong/severe thunderstorms will be possible during the second half of Monday. Damaging winds and torrential rain will be the top threats. Storms will exit eastern counties during the evening.

A ridge will build across the central US through the rest of the week. Our forecast will turn drier and less active. There will also be a direct flow from the Gulf to Kentucky. Our days will also turn sultry with highs near 90° again by Friday. We will hold off organized thunderstorm chances until next weekend. Even then it won’t be a washout.
