A risk for severe weather later this afternoon through overnight tonight – possibly extending into early Tuesday morning for far eastern areas. Latest short-range weather models continue to indicate the potential for strong/possibly severe cells to form out ahead of a developing line of storms.
This would include areas or generally along/west of I-55 and could begin as early as early/mid afternoon. Confidence of this occurring is low – and is dependent if sunshine breaks out morning/early afternoon.
Storms will consolidate into a broken line and quickly race east late afternoon, evening and into the overnight hours and possibly as late as early Tuesday morning for the Mississippi coastline/adjacent marine areas.
Continue to monitor conditions later today, advisories, watches or warnings that could be issued across the Coast. Secure outside decorations that could be effected by higher winds and make sure there is a way to receive weather alerts.
