Good Sunday, folks. We have a potent summer cold front working into the region and it’s bringing strong to severe storms with it. This front will unleash another pleasant air mass to start the new week, but steam and storms look to return for the second half of the week. That may be a nice little fight taking shape.

Showers and storms will cross the state in waves today. Damaging winds and large hail and the primary severe weather players with this. Here’s the current Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center…

In addition to the severe threat, these storms can put down a ton of rain and cause local flash flood issues to develop. Today may wind up being a fairly active weather day.

Monday looks great with low humidity and pleasant temps ranging from 80-85 under a partly sunny sky.

The setup for the second half of next week into next weekend will turn very steamy as a plains heat ridge flexes some muscle into the region. Still, rounds of showers and thunderstorms are likely to play a roll in just how high our temps can get. We may see several storm complexes diving in from the northwest through the following week. The GFS Ensembles show an above normal rainfall setup from this potential…

As always, I leave you with your tracking toys for the day…
