Monday is a First Alert Weather Day

(KWES) - Monday is a First Alert Weather Day. Isolated to scattered storms are expected to pop up along a dryline Monday afternoon/early evening. They should pop up in the central portions of the viewing area and then move east during the evening hours.

A few storms could be strong to severe. The main threats include large hail up to 2" in diameter and 60+ mph wind gusts. Overall, the tornado threat with any severe storm will be very low. The best time for a storm to go severe should be around 4-7 pm as we hit our high temperatures for the day.

*Moisture may be limited which could end up limiting storm coverage. More updates will come as we head into Monday
