**FIRST ALERT ACTION DAY FOR TODAY**
There is a greater risk for severe weather today during the evening hours. A strong line of storms will move in during the early evening that will have damaging winds and embedded isolated tornadoes. This risk is the highest for our western counties. It will weaken as it moves east across the Heartland, however, we could see the severe risk of damaging winds through Wednesday morning.
This morning, we are watching a line of storms that is bringing extremely heavy downpours, gusty winds, and isolated small hail. This should weaken as it moves east. Most of the day will be rather calm, but it will be humid and warm with temperatures in the 80s. A warm front will move north into the Heartland during the afternoon which could produce isolated storms-if this happens, these will need to be monitored. Again, the main threat will be the storms this evening.
The sticky and unseasonably warm temperatures will continue through the weekend.
