A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect for our area until 10 p.m. Monday. After 10, most activity is expected to quiet down.

In the meantime, any thunderstorm can be slow moving and can have heavy downpours and hail.

This first full week of summer has already brought high heat and humidity, which should continue for much of the week.

A thunderstorm chance will be with us every afternoon and evening this week, especially Thursday. Things will remain unsettled into the weekend with some thunderstorms around.
