The combination of temperatures in the 80s, dewpoints in the mid 60s, the approach of a weak surface front and cooling air aloft will set the stage for the first widespread severe thunderstorm event of the season with the main threat time for damaging wind, large hail, locally torrential rain, and frequent lightning running between 2pm and 9pm.
It appears an organized line of downpours and locally severe thunderstorms will be possible moving across the entire region during the afternoon and early evening hours. On a positive note, the rainfall that the convection will deliver will be beneficial and much needed.
