A strong cold front will approach from the west bringing the threat for severe weather right around the drive time home this evening. The main threat will be strong winds and heavy rain.

The cold front will stall out on Tuesday and bring scattered storms with heavy rain and much cooler temperatures.

All eyes on Claudette which has returned to tropical storm strength Monday morning as it nears the coast of the Carolinas.
