Storm timing: The beautiful weather this morning is just a brief lull in activity and is actually helping to destabilize the atmosphere. This means we have a few extra hours to get out. It looks like storms will start rolling in around 2 p.m. The best chance for severe weather is from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Scroll through Futurecast images to get an idea of ​​storm coverage and timing. Use these images as a measure, not as the exact position of storms at a given moment. Note that the storms will clear up by tonight, and the clouds will appear to clear overnight. Fog will be possible, but this will give us a chance to see the Perseid meteor shower!

Wait, what about Sunday? I haven't forgotten Sunday. But it seems to be dry most of the day. There is a tiny shot of rain late in the day. It looks like this break will be short as another round of storms are expected by Monday and into Tuesday. There will be a cold front, making the start of next week not only active, but colder than usual!
