Strong Thunderstorms Possible Tuesday Evening


Strong thunderstorms will be possible once again Tuesday evening as a weak upper level disturbance moves across the Midwest and Great Lakes. A cold front passing through the Stateline Monday evening brought with it showers and thunderstorms, most remaining below severe limits.

Behind the front is a slightly drier air mass but dew points Tuesday afternoon are forecast to reach the mid 60s once again. This moisture in the atmosphere could help fuel a few thunderstorms as the disturbance works in from Iowa late in the evening. The overall risk for storms is low but any storm that can grow strong enough would have the potential to produce quarter sized hail and wind gusts to 60 mph. Heavy rainfall would also be a threat with any thunderstorm.
