Today is a 9 First Warning Weather Alert Day due to the potential of more severe thunderstorms.

The first line of storms packed a punch this afternoon with damage from large hail and gusty winds. Those storms have worked our atmosphere over pretty well, but we still aren't out of the woods just yet.

Another round of storms is expected overnight into early Sunday bringing the potential at more strong or severe weather. The main threats with the overnight storms will be damaging wind gusts of 60+ mph as well as 1 inch in diameter hail. Flash Flooding may be a concern as well, seeing that many areas have picked up 2"+ of rain today and we had heavy rain earlier in the week.

The latest update from the Storm Prediction Center has scaled us down to a Marginal Risk (Level 1 of 5) overnight, and it includes much of the Tri-State. Areas north of I-74 are not in this risk.

The next line of storms, if it develops, will likely come in after 11 p.m. and move through the early morning hours on Sunday. This should be clear of the Tri-State by 3 a.m. ending our threat for severe weather. However, we will still have a few lingering showers through the morning on Sunday as the cold front fully passes through.

That front will mean a big cool-down is on the way for Sunday. Highs will only make it to the upper 60s to low 70s and we will stay mostly cloudy into the afternoon. There is a chance to see a few showers throughout the late morning and into midday. However, the afternoon should bring some nice sunshine with a great evening expected.

Monday will be quiet and dry before another system moves in midweek bringing storms for Wednesday and Thursday.
