Severe Storms Possible
Another wave of storms will approach the area late this afternoon into this evening. Storms will be quite widespread mid/late evening into the overnight (8 pm onward). There will be a lot of lightning -- make sure you have proper shelter as the storms approach. [There are severe weather safety tips on the main weather page.]
We have a MODERATE risk of severe weather. The primary threat will be damaging winds. However, some large hail is also possible. A few isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out.
With the extremely muggy air in place, storms will unleash torrential downpours. Areas that see repeated thunderstorms will accumulate a few inches of rain in short amount of time.
You can purchase a severe weather radio at Kroger for a discounted price. More details can be found here: http://www.wtol.com/Global/story.asp?S=12681658
