Perhaps the most important feature that we will keep an eye on will be the state of the atmosphere during the day on Sunday. Depending on many specifics, thunderstorm initiation could occur prior to the arrival of the line of storms on Sunday. If this is the case, this would be the period of time with the highest risk of severe weather. This is primarily due to the storms being in a more favorable, isolated environment. Tornadoes, large hail, and damaging winds are all a possibility if supercells are able to form ahead of the expected line of thunderstorms on Sunday.

With that said, now is the time to revisit your severe weather plans (we are in the heart of secondary severe weather season). As of now, you should be prepared for all types of severe weather for the entirety of Sunday. As we get closer, timing and storm mode will become more precise and of course we will pass that information on to you. Let us know if you have any questions regarding the potential severe weather Sunday!
