However, the front will be moving into an airmass that has featured very humid air, hot temperatures, and plenty of instability. That will mean a good chance that we'll see thunderstorms ahead of it, which will occur during the day and evening Sunday. In fact, there will be atmospheric factors in play that will provide the ingredients for the possibility of some severe storms on Sunday. As typical for severe storms in the summertime, the main threats will be from damaging wind and perhaps some large hail, in addition to dangerous lightning. Due to the abundance of moisture/humidity in place, some storms could also bring heavy rain in short periods of time.
