After a quiet weekend, scattered strong to severe thunderstorms will move into the region later Monday afternoon into Monday evening.

The main threats from these storms will be hail, damaging winds and heavy rainfall. The strongest storms could even produce a short-lived tornado.

Most of the thunderstorm activity will occur during the late afternoon and evening hours. Showers will linger into the overnight hours but should generally wrap up by the morning commute Tuesday.

The thunderstorms are being sparked by an approaching cold front that will run into the humid air mass that is in place.

Behind the front, it will be cooler and less humid both Tuesday and Wednesday with a return of sunshine.
