Possible Severe Storms on Monday

What a spectacular weekend - seasonably warm temperatures, lower humidities and almost unlimited sunshine - a nice way to move into the fall season indeed.  Changes are in the offing however as a storm system approaches us from the Northwest on Monday. 

As the storm system is approaching - our winds have turned to the South and will usher in higher temperatures and humidity as well on Monday.  These to factors will increase the instability of the airmass.  As the cold front associated with the storm approaches, the forcing from the front could trigger formation of some storms, some of which could become severe.  It doesn't look like this will be a widespread event as there is an atmospheric cap in place and could prevent the storms from growing to severe size. 

Timing on arrival of the front and the associated storms will need to be watched.  Based on models reviewed tonight, it looks like the timing will be 8 or 9 pm tomorrow.  Sometimes storms can be triggered before the front arrives as well, so stay in touch with us and we'll keep you updated. 

After the front passes on Monday, Tuesday looks to be another beautiful day.  Have a great night!
