Any storms that develop could bring gusty winds capable of knocking down tree branches, frequent lightning, small hail, and minor flooding in areas where the ground is already saturated.

TIMING

A little later in the day than Monday’s severe storm threat, storms will develop late afternoon Tuesday and cross the region through the early evening.
