(KFVS) -

Right now, we are seeing lots of sunshine across the area with very warm temperatures.

We will be watching thunderstorms develop to our north and move our way later this afternoon.

Most areas west of the Mississippi River will likely stay dry today.

Later this evening we will likely see a line of storms move towards the I-64 corridor. These storms could produce gusty winds and small hail.

The greatest threat of storms will be just outside the Heartland.
