Other than a few isolated pop-ups, we had a nice day for the beginning of summer. For the first full day of summer, we add more activity to the mix. A low, generating near the Mississippi, will slide in and allow scattered thunderstorms through the afternoon and evening. Due to the lower pressure, storms will be more widespread as compared to yesterday. Heavy downpours, and a few strong wind gusts will be the main effects of these storms. We may see a few storms push severe limits with wind this afternoon, so be prepared. If you hear thunder, head indoors and wait it out.

Most of the activity will wrap up later this evening as the heat of the day lowers. A few light showers are possible through the overnight and early morning hours as the low departs. Temperatures will cool to the middle 60s Monday morning. Another round of isolated to scattered storms is expected for the start of the week, but the best chance will be Tuesday as a cold front arrives. Rain and storms will be likely before a cooler and more comfortable air mass for midweek.
