While a strong storm or two is possible, the greatest concern will be heavy rain that could lead to some localized flooding.

The front lifts north through the day Tuesday leading to a smaller chance of showers and storms during the day. It will be warm and breezy with highs near 70. If the clouds thin out, we could easily get warmer.

We then turn our attention to Wednesday night when a cold front brings a line of storms across the state. The Storm Prediction Center already has our entire coverage area outlined in a risk for severe storms.
