We're under an *ENHANCED* risk for severe weather today...so what does that mean?

It's not entirely uncommon, and widespread severe weather isn't likely. Instead, expect a line of storms to move through around the early afternoon, some of which could become a little intense. Some gusty winds are possible, along with an isolated tornado.

The ground is fairly saturated, and a flood watch continues into Monday evening. This is different than "flash" flooding which is more sudden and usually happens during the event itself. At this time, most area rivers are not expected to make it into minor flood stage.

Be vigilant and stay updated through the day. Beyond this, the sun returns and eventually even some cool temperatures. I'll be here with you tonight and through the morning tomorrow.

Expect Highs in the low 70s. Overnight, partly cloudy with lows in the upper 50s.

We will slowly cool with the passage of a front leading into a fairly cool pattern midweek. Highs will likely stay out of the 60's even through the weekend. A few nights in the 30's are expected. We'll see some sunshine until the weekend, when some cloudiness is expected with the chance for showers into Saturday and Sunday. Beyond the weekend, it looks like we could see another cold front pass through.
