After a bright and very warm Monday, storms closed in on the viewing area during the course of the afternoon. We had one three-county warning for hail possibly to quarter size, but after the expiration of that warning, we have continued to monitor non-severe storms. Under the heating of the day these storms have been firing right out ahead of a cold front that is now entering the viewing area. As it slowly passes, storms will still be possible this evening and overnight. While severe weather is possible, most storms will stay under severe limits. The strongest storms may come with small hail and downpours. Additionally, the storms have been slow moving and that has allowed for some nice healthy rainfall amounts across the area. But, the pulse-type storms have been hit or miss. If you're looking for rain, be patient. Most locations under a good storm passing through have received a quarter to half inch of rain. And, storm chances continue on and off Tuesday into early Wednesday. The bottom line is that in the next 36 hours, there's a good opportunity to pick up one to as much as two inches of rainfall. Beyond that, our next rain chance returns on Sunday.
