Strong to Severe Storms Monday

A strong weather system will pass through the state on Monday dragging a cold front across the state through the day and early evening.

This system will be accompanied by a strong jet and a narrow area of instability, setting up for a high-sear low-CAPE environment. A strong cap will hold storms off through the morning and early afternoon, but as the cold front begins to slide through the state, the cap will begin to erode.  This will allow thunderstorms to develop along and ahead of the front.

A few storms could become strong to severe with damaging winds as the primary threat, and large hail as a secondary threat. There is a small possibility that a couple storms may produce a brief tornado spin up. However, this threat appears to be rather low. The storms will then pass to the east in the late evening.
