MM’s Mon Wx Forecast for June 6

An unsettled pattern begins to evolve today, increasing rain and storm chances, especially by tonight. A few storms could be strong from now through Wednesday, perhaps even locally severe at times, but widespread severe weather is not expected. By Thursday, drier air works into the area but it is short-lived, as another active period of weather begins to take shape by Friday evening.

This Week’s Hazards

Widespread severe weather is not expected in this five-day time period. However, keep in mind that any storm that develops Monday night through Wednesday could be on the strong side, with gusty winds, small hail, cloud-to-ground lightning and heavy rainfall.
