Time for Mother Nature to possibly cause a little ruckus throughout the day and early evening.

A round of showers and thunderstorms will push through the area this morning as they enter from Kansas. These storms are not expected to be severe but could have heavy downpours, frequent lightning, and gusty winds as they push through. The second round of thunderstorms expected to develop this afternoon will somewhat depend on how fast the morning storms push through. The earlier the clouds can clear out of the area the better chance for thunderstorms to develop. The storms that do develop are expected to be scattered in nature and could be strong to severe with large hail and damaging winds being the main threat. These storms are expected to push out of the area a few hours after sunset as they move off to the east.
