FIRST ALERT FORECAST: Alert Day issued for Monday ahead of storm threat

Temperatures were warmer today in the mid 80s across the area! Winds have shifted out of the south and are ushering in muggier, warmer conditions ahead of our next cold front.

Storms will be likely on Monday as our next cold front moves through and severe weather will be possible. Therefore, Monday is an ALERT DAY. It looks like our NW counties (Lower Delta) will see the line of storms move through around 8-11AM. Although a few showers and storms are possible ahead of the main line, the line of storms will arrive in the metro around 10-2PM, 2-4PM for our SE counties. Damaging wind gusts and the potential for a tornado or two are our biggest concerns as the line pushes to the southeast. This is a scattered threat, not widespread like areas to our west are dealing with tonight. Either way, make sure you can hear warnings throughout the day!

Drier and cooler conditions work in for the rest of the week until another cold front brings more showers and storms by Friday.
