Multiple rounds of severe thunderstorms are possible today through the overnight hours. Severe storms could develop as early as late this morning. A line of severe storms is expected to move across the region tonight. Damaging winds, large hail, and tornadoes will be possible.
So, things could get rough starting around 2 pm and stay that way throughout the evening. If the storms knocks out the power or produces a tornado, we'll keep you updated.
