As we track through the week, temperatures will slowly warm a degree or two from day to day. The extended forecast hints at the hot summer heat potentially creeping back towards the end of the next weekend.

Severe Storm Outlook for today features just the northern portions of the area under a 1 out of 5.

As the rest of your Monday is likely to stay dry, tomorrow may bring a severe threat to the Stateline. The morning hours for Tuesday may bring isolated strong storms with the biggest threat being damaging winds and large hail.

Tuesday afternoon may see another round as a cold front is expected to sweep through the area but we'll continue to monitor how the situation will set up for tomorrow.

The rest of the week brings little to no rain chances as sunshine will return with those above average temperatures.
