A hot and muggy morning will give way to the possibility of severe thunderstorms later in the afternoon and evening.
FOX 5's Gary McGrady and Mike Thomas say everyone in the region is under an enhanced risk for severe weather at this point in the day. The risk of flash flooding and strong winds also remains high at this time.
A jet stream pushing into the area from the west will bring the storms our way. Sever weather could start to develop around 1:30 p.m. with the heaviest passing over the Interstate 95 corridor between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.
By tomorrow we dry out with highs around 88 degrees. Summer begins on Wednesday with warmer temperatures in store.
Looks to be a busy afternoon in the weather department. Strong storms are expected later this afternoon. Times to watch locally about 3-7pm. pic.twitter.com/xRMPUzwK2S— Mike Thomas (@MikeTFox5) June 19, 2017
Big storms could bring some big rain totals later today. Too much, too fast is a recipe for flooding. Stay alert! pic.twitter.com/3q6FZRy9oE— Mike Thomas (@MikeTFox5) June 19, 2017
