FIRST ALERT: Widespread storms rolling through Monday

FIRST ALERT: Widespread storms rolling through Monday

(WBTV) - While we haven't had much storm activity over the weekend, we will be tracking the progress of a front rolling through on Monday that will likely produce more widespread storms during the afternoon, in addition to isolated-scattered severe storms, so a First Alert Day has been declared for Monday.

This front has been stalled just to our north over the weekend, but it will sag south for Monday.

As this happens, a complex of severe storms will likely form to our west, rolling east through the viewing area during the afternoon and evening.

As of right now, a marginal risk for severe storms has been highlighted for our area, but I would not be surprised to see this upgraded to a slight risk by Monday.

As of right now, the mountains should be prepared for possible damaging winds from these storms as early as 2 p.m. or so, with the line reaching the I-77 corridor around 4 p.m., and into our eastern counties by 6 p.m.

Here's one bit of good news - while highs Monday will still likely reach the 90s (making it the twelfth consecutive day), the passage of this front means cooler weather finally settles in for Tuesday, when some spots may not make it out of the low 80s!
