Estimated reading time:2 minutes, 38 seconds

After another hot and humid day, we are tracking another round of severe weather expected for the state tomorrow and on top of it, some areas may even experience warmer temperatures than today!

The primary severe weather threat is expected to arrive later in the day tomorrow, likely after 6 PM for our northwestern counties and will slowly drift southeastward throughout the remaining evening hours. As it does so, it is anticipated that the storms will weaken and eventually fall apart. Because of this many areas south and east of I-81 will remain dry tomorrow.
