August is starting out with a risk for strong storms and heavy rain.
The 22News Storm Team has issued a Weather Alert for this afternoon and into the early evening due to the potential for hazardous and dangerous weather.
This is what to expect:
1PM-8PM: Scattered storms and downpours, best chance for severe weather
8PM-Overnight: Showers fading, isolated leftover storm
Main Threats: Street flooding downpours, damaging winds and lightning
Secondary Threats: Low risk for hail, very low chance for a tornado
The severe weather threat may depend somewhat on whether we can get breaks of sun to develop this afternoon into the early evening. The more sun we get, the more unstable the atmosphere can get.
Stay with the 22News Storm Team as we track today’s potential and we’ll let you know of any changes to the timing or severe weather risk as we head through the day.
