We will see plenty of sun today but the ample sunshine will work to destabilize the atmosphere a bit this afternoon. A weak upper-level disturbance will swing through the north of our area late in the day and it will bring just enough of a trigger to get a popup shower or storm going.
There will some ingredients for severe weather, just not a lot of it. Any severe storms will be isolated. The primary threat with today’s storms will be strong wind gusts and hail.
The bottom line today – I wouldn’t cancel my outdoor plans this afternoon. Just be aware that a shower or storm might visit at some point. Any storm could bring strong wind gusts and hail.
